This is Brazil. Enjoy the World Cup but be conscious and not ignorant.
I wonder what is the connection between the Telerj eviction with the world cup anyway?
The eviction happenned because people were living in a building that was abandoned 8 years ago that belongs to some sort of overpowered telecommunication company. Btw, the building was sold in the privatization of Brazilian telecommunications in 1998 to this company which was called TELEMAR back then (today it’s Oi).
I know it’s a violation of human rights and I know someting should be done about it because a society in which corporations are more important than humans is one of the most terrifying things capitalism can provide (and we ARE living in this world). But to spread misinformation isn’t going to help a thing… and you people should watch out when you share things that aren’t connected at all.
Anyway, there’s something happenning in brazil today and it is an attempt to delegitimize the world cup and whatever else the actual federal government does. We see everyday several attempts to blame the federal government of issues that were supposed to be from state or municipal jurisdiction. More than that there are also many news unrelated to the world cup or to the actual goverment that are spread like this one. Why? Because we have a government that is NOT pleasing the brazilian elite, which also includes the media itself.
