WORLD CONFEDERATION CUP: BRAZIL 3 x 0 SPAIN

In soccer, Brazil defeats Spain at the final of the World Confederation Cup, and so what? They win from Brazil in health, education, transport…

Obeying the order of FIFA, police received orders to prevent that any civilian get reach less than 3 kilometers of a Confederation Cup stadium. Brazilian citizens were prevented from exercising their constitutional right to come and go, and prevented from exercising their right to freedom of expression by an arbitrary and authoritarian government that disguises itself as a democracy. The media, led by the manipulative Globo Network, covereth the police atrocities against the population through manipulating the information and calling by troublemakers the legitimate demonstrators. This video, made during the final of the Confederations Cup, it’s pretty clear that the police attacked first with tear gas. Violent and unprepared, the police attacked innocent citizens on the streets and even inside their homes.

5 REASONS FOR YOU NOT COME TO BRAZIL WORLD CUP 2014:

1. VIOLENCE AGAINST TOURISTS.
In recent months, violence against tourists in Brazil, especially in Rio de Janeiro, doubled compared to the previous months. Recently, the rape of a young tourist and the violence against a couple of tourists inside a van in Rio de Janeiro and the assault to ten German tourists in the Tijuca Forest drew worldwide attention.

2. URBAN VIOLENCE.
A growing number of armed robbery (robbery followed by death) in the country, especially in the poorest regions, especially burglary, vehicle theft and kidnapping. Last week, a boy named Bryan, 5 years old was fatally shot in the head during a robbery because they could not stop crying. The bandits broke into the home of the boy to steal a little over 2.000 dollars. In past week, 10 people died in a confront with police forces in the Favela da Maré, Rio de Janeiro: 1 policeman, 7 criminals and 2 innocents.

3. CHAOS IN AIRPORTS.
Brazilian airports, especially airports of Guarulhos, in São Paulo, and Tom Jobim, in Rio de Janeiro, have no structure to meet the internal demand of users, resulting in delays and cancellations of flights and many losses for passengers. Imagine when the number of users increase during the World Cup.

4. RAINS.
The main cities of the country, especially Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo have no structure to support a stronger rain. Floods, landslides and tragedies such as Niteroi, 3 years ago that killed over 200 people, or the tragedy in the mountain region of Rio de Janeiro in 2011, could be avoided. Luck is that during the winter months – the time of completion of the World Cup – it rains less in the country.

13Rains in the mountain region of Rio de Janeiro killed more than 900 people in 2011.

5. COMUNICATIONS.
The Brazilian telecommunications system is one of most expensive and insecure. A broadband connection costs around 40 dollars to the equivalent of 5 MB speed, but the mobile Internet services that are still in the testing phase in the country (4G) does not correspond to what the carriers offer. The major carriers can not meet the domestic demand of users, imagine the chaos in the service when millions of people (both tourists and journalists) will need telephone lines and internet connections permanently.

7 REASONS WHY BRAZILIAN PEOPLE DO NOT NEED A WORLD CUP:

The 14 billion dollars spent by the Brazilian government in the realization of the World Cup, about 700 million dollars spent only in reforming the Maracana stadium – which had already undergone a complete renovation in 2007 for the Pan American Games – could be invested to give a better quality of life for the population of many brazilian cities.

maracanãThe total cost of the new reforming of the Maracanã was more than US$ 700 million. The double of the amount initially calculated.

All this money could be used in:

1. PUBLIC SAFETY, HIGHER SALARY AND BETTER PREPARATION OF POLICE.
Police in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo are the biggest killers in the world. Most of its victims are innocents, youngs and workers from lower classes of the population.

2. PUBLIC HOSPITALS AND HEALTH CENTERS, AND BETTER WAGES AND WORKING CONDITIONS FOR HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS.
For over 20 years, the neglect of public health in Brazil promotes barbarities such as: patients sleeping on the streets to get schedule queries and exams, patients waiting hours for a call, patients accommodated in the hallways for lack of beds, many deaths for lack of assistance in cases of emergency.

3. PUBLIC EDUCATION, BETTER WAGES FOR TEACHERS.
There’s an absolut indifference of the Government with public education for almost 3 decades: public schools in a poor state, impromptu, objects in disrepair, teachers unprepared and poorly paid. The budget for school lunches, a right of the student population, it is often stolen by politicians. In the photo below student eating rice and beans only.

4. PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION QUALITY.
Transport services in Brazil are the most expensive and the most precarious in the world. Buses, trains and subways crowded, delays during trips, the insufficient number of vehicles and the lack of maintenance of the same cause chaos as in the photo below: passengers in Rio de Janeiro have to get out from the train and walk the railroad tracks to the next station.

5. IMPROVEMENT OF STREETS AND ROADS.
The streets and country roads are in disrepair. Excess motor vehicles (mainly trucks to transport the products) triggers the destruction of asphalt. The total lack of maintenance causes holes and threatens the lives of drivers. The roads of Brazil kill thousands of people every year.

6. INVESTMENT IN ALTERNATIVE TRANSPORTATION
For 30 years, the Brazilian government does not invest in alternative transportation, forcing people to use the road and the few trains and subway lines available in a few capitals. The interstate rail simply is extinct. The stations and trains are rotting. The Leopoldina Station in Rio de Janeiro and the silver train that was linking Rio de Janeiro to Sao Paulo, it’s disabled since 2003. See in the photos below:

7. BASIC SANITATION.
Most Brazilian cities do not have a policy to promote public access to a minimum of health and sanitation. The open sewers, ditches and trash accumulate around the cities, promoting diseases and epidemics that could be avoided.

Now, you have a choice. To come or come not to Brazil World Cup. The protests are legitimate.

FOR EVERYTHING THAT WAS SAID HERE IS WELL CLEAR WHY YOU SHOULD NOT COME TO BRAZIL FOR THE WORLD CUP

The money used in making the World Cup came from taxes paid by the population and all the money earned from the completion of the World Cup will not be invested to improve the lives of people most in need: he goes to the politicians and governments and companies who are profiting from million dollar contracts to perform these works. The rest of the income derived from the World Cup WILL GO ALL TO THE POCKETS OF THE FIFA AUTHORITIES. The Brazilian people who paid for all of this will CONTINUE abandoned. Brazil will have stadiums as the first world but will continue with health and education services among the worst in the world. As T-shirt says below: “When your child get sick, take him to the stadium”.

    Hi I really like your article, but I do have a couple of questions. I’m curious if you have the source for “The rest of the income derived from the World Cup WILL GO ALL TO THE POCKETS OF THE FIFA AUTHORITIES” to back it up. It’s only because I’d like to have proof of what I’m saying in a discussion I’m having on the subject. I myself am not in favor of spending so much money on the world cup when there are so many other things that could be done at the moment in Brazil. My friend brought to my attention this article (which will require you to understand Portuguese well): http://cbjm.wordpress.com/2013/06/24/no-im-not-going-to-the-world-cup-a-desconstrucao-de-uma-fraude/ I’m currently reading it and refuting some of its main points that seem flawed. Once again, I appreciate your writing this!

      I read the text. But statistics do not interest me because they do not come from reputable research sources. I know the true. I see it every day. I live in Brazil (Rio de Janeiro) and I know all the problems that the Brazilian people face daily.
      The truth is that everything is manipulation, including the video. The girl in the video, of course, want to promote herself (she is or claims to be a filmmaker). But what is true about the World Cup is that 5 years ago, the Rio de Janeiro hosted an edition of the Pan American Games and the works to hold the event did not bring any improvement to the population. Why in the World Cup would be different? There is a lot of corruption in Brazil and no certainty that part of these 13 billion dollars will be invested to improve the lives of those who really need it. And if you protest for your right to free speech, the police have orders to shoot you and arrest you. What kind of democracy is this?

      Today 1 Real equals to 2,35 Dollars. If the Cup will cost R$ 30 billions, make the count: US$ 12.765.000,00.

      Thanks for your comment.

        Yes, you’re quite right about the statistics. I finished reading the article and looking over some of the verifiable statistics and it turns out the author is guilty of exactly the things he accused the girl of!! I think about the only mistake she made was saying dollars instead of reals. I’ve heard quite a bit about RJ from down here in Florianopolis. One of my students is from there and complains about it a lot! And thanks for the additional points you bring about the Pan American games and the democracy bit. Please stay safe! I’m glad the police here seem to have more of the mindset of being there to protect the public from wrongdoers than attack anyone who speaks out.
