The FIFA World Cup and the Brazilian football dictatorship

With the blood of thousands of innocent people injured, tortured and killed in the name of order will start the FIFA big circus.


Why we do not want this World Cup?

Because the Brazilian people are tired of being humiliated by politicians liars, opportunists and corrupted. Because the Brazilian people are tired of seeing people dying in the queues of hospitals without receiving medical care. Because the Brazilian people are tired of seeing their children without access to education. Because the Brazilian people are tired of paying the highest rate of duty in the world without receiving anything in return. Because the Brazilian people are tired of corrupt and hypocritical politicians who only create laws for their own benefit. Because the Brazilian people are tired of the violence, of not having security to go to work or go to the streets. Because the Brazilian people are tired of the violence of the police forces – the police of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro are the biggest killers in the world. Because the Brazilian people are tired of not having jobs and don’t have a decent wage while the costs for the World Cup is estimated at R$ 30 billion or US$ 13,9 billion, with the reform of the Maracana stadium costed alone R$ 1 billion or US$ 465 million. Do you think it is fair?). Because the Brazilian people are tired of the precarious, inefficient and expensive public transport. Because the Brazilian people are tired of the promises and lies of governments that betrayed the trust of those who elected them. Because the Brazilian people are tired. The people that are on the streets are shouting they are tired of all of this.

But despite all the problems (unfinished stadiums, unfinished works, scrapped airports, poor public transport, strikes, protests, increasing violence and social chaos promoted by various groups opposed to the event) it seems that the World Cup circus will start on 12 June.

The new Brazilian dictatorship

And all these corrupt politicians and rulers want is to profit with the event and show a false image of the country to impress foreign tourists. The old strategy from the times of the military dictatorship that tried to make Brazil to enter into the First World through the back door creating great works that consumed public property and are now abandoned (do you remember or heard about the Trans-Amazonian Highway? No? See photos here and read about here). Just as the fascists and murderous generals who led Brazil and ordered useless works at touch of cash, the current government of President Dilma Rousseff (as fascist and murderous as the militaries) is using the World Cup and the 2016 Olympics to burn public money, profit with the works and the events and, just as in the past, using the corrupted media (read Globo TV) to deceive and alienate the people and make all of us to believe that all this is necessary for the development of the country.

The lies of this fascist government that controls the country and the capitalist groups that are using the image of President Dilma Rousseff (an ex-guerrilla fighter of the times of military dictatorship which have corrupted herself like every Brazilian politician who reaches a certain degree of power) to create a fake sense of order and make people ignorant thinking the World Cup is required. Because of this, still there’s a considerable portion of the population that does not know the truth. That’s because the only access they have to information is through the corrupt media that invents lies and hides the truth just because not only defends the interests of these groups as well will profit with the event: Globo Network, the largest cancer in the media sector in Brazil, which supported the military dictatorship in the years 60 and 70 and now supports the capitalist dictatorship that was installed after the fall of the military regime in the early ’80s.

The World Cup is needed for whom?

For bums and corrupt politicians as governors of Rio de Janeiro Sergio Cabral and Governor of Sao Paulo Geraldo Alckmin, who pocketed millions of dollars in illicit and overpriced construction contracts? For Odebrecht and Andrade Gutierrez contractors who made ​​millions of dollars from overpriced contracts to perform useless works in host cities and stadiums that will not be finalized in time for the start of the games? For FIFA, which will pocket millions of dollars from broadcasting rights and advertising during games? For Globo Network that will broadcast the World Cup games and have the rights of transmission until the World Cup 2022? For the football clubs who will inherit the stadiums used for the World Cup? For the real estate companies that will sell the buildings constructed in areas that were valued for being close to the stadiums or experienced some improvement work – this after the former residents were expelled from these locations because of the real state speculation? Sure.

But the excuse is that the World Cup will bring tourists who will spend lots of money in the country. Yes, but they will spend on hotels, restaurants and services, whose owners already have money. Furthermore, in a month all the tourists are gone and the revenue from these sectors will return to normal. A month of profit for one or another sector of the economy of a country justifies this huge spending with the cost of an event like the World Cup? Yes, if there is corruption as it exists in Brazil. If it was not an advantage to these corrupt politicians, there would be no World Cup in Brazil. If is going to have a World Cup, is because some (few) people are profiting (very) with the event: politicians, TV stations owners, contractors and owners of business groups that control the main products and services offered in the country.

Think about it: why Brazil was chosen to host the World Cup 2014 even with all the difficulties and needs of the country to conduct such events? Because FIFA is very kind and wanted to give the World Cup to Brazil? NO. Because no civilized and developed country in the world was interested in hosting the World Cup because they know because of its past experiences that host major sporting events such as the World Cup only causes chaos and damage. In addition, other countries also interested were offering worse situation than Brazil. Do you can think about a World Cup being realized in Colombia?

And the improvements in the cities that will host the games?

What improvements? Evict people from their homes to build stores and parking lots and then sell all to the real estate speculation? Tell the police and army to occupy strategic areas of these cities on the pretext of is guaranteeing the safety of tourists when in fact the function of these agents is to terrorize the population to do not undertake violent protests against the governments and the hosting of the World Cup as happened in June and July last year? All cities that will host World Cup matches are being shaken by strikes, protests, increasing violence and do not received any investment in health, education and public transport.

Cup for whom?

For the black and poor favela resident who will see the Brazilian team plays on television or for the rich white who can afford the expensive ticket to watch the World Cup games in the stadiums? A challenge if you will watch the games on TV: try to find a black person in the stands of stadiums. For the street vendor who will sell popsicles and water (because the sale of alcohol is prohibited in the surroundings of the stadiums) and may even have two weeks of profit, but what about when the World Cup is over? To the citizen who will have drastically altered their routine with dozens of street closures, dozens of unfinished works and services overpriced due to the increase in demand for these products and services?

World Cup? If this was good for any country, every country in the world would want to conduct one.

But even with all the social chaos, violence and corruption in her government and delays in structural works such as airports and stadiums unfinished, what Mrs. Dilma Rousseff says about the World Cup?

“I am proud of our achievements. We do not have to be ashamed of and we do not have the mutts complex” – presidente Dilma Rousseff.

Really, Mrs. Dilma? Read what the people think about the FIFA World Cup, painted in a train wagon in Brazil:


And what Mrs. Dilma Rousseff thinks about the protests against the World Cup in Brazil?


And what Mr. Joseph Blatter – the FIFA’s president – thinks about the World Cup in Brazil?

“The Brazilians are a bit unhappy as they have been promised a great deal. Brazil is the sixth biggest economy in the world and when Mr Lula was elected president he promised to improve the country. But to improve it requires the willingness of the people to work. Society has become divided” Joseph Blatter, in an enterview to a Swiss newspaper  (read here).

Really, Mr. Blatter? Do you think can call Brazilian people of vagabonds (“it requires the willingness of the people to work”) and throw garbage in our backyard and get away like this? This is my personal message to you, Mr. Blatter:


And this is my message to Mrs. Dilma Rousseff, Mr. Sergio Cabral, Mr. Geraldo Alckmin, Mr. Eduardo Paes, Mr. Aldo Rebelo, Mr. Pelé, Mr. Eike Batista, Mr. Ronaldo, Globo Network and everyone who are supporting this f*ck World Cup in my country! Go to hell!


I will turn off my TV and radio in the next month and I will see movies and write about them to my movies blogs (Assim Era Hollywood and Cult Movies). I’ll be back when this shit have finished. It’s not because I hate football, it’s because of everything about this goddam World Cup.

Porque nós não queremos uma Copa do Mundo?

Apesar de todos os problemas (estádios inacabados, obras inacabadas, aeroportos sucateados, transporte público deficiente, greves, protestos, violência crescente e caos social promovido por diversos grupos contrários à realização do evento) parece que o circo da FIFA vai começar mesmo no dia 12 de junho.

A nova ditadura brasileira
Tudo o que esses políticos e governantes corruptos querem é lucrar com o evento e mostrar uma falsa imagem do país para impressionar os turistas estrangeiros. A velha estratégia dos tempos da ditadura militar que tentou fazer o Brasil entrar para o Primeiro Mundo pela porta dos fundos realizando obras grandiosas que consumiram o patrimônio público e agora estão abandonadas (você se lembra ou ouviu falar da Transamazônica? Não? Veja fotos e leia mais aqui). Da mesma forma que os generais fascistas e sanguinários que comandaram o Brasil e ordenaram obras inúteis a toque de caixa, o atual governo (tão fascista e sanguinário quanto os militares) está usando a Copa do Mundo e as Olimpíadas de 2016 para queimar dinheiro público, lucrar com as obras e o evento e, da mesma forma que no passado, usar a mídia corrompida (entenda-se Rede Globo de Televisão) para enganar o povo alienado e fazer crer que tudo isso é necessário para o desenvolvimento do país.

As mentiras do governo fascista que controla o país e dos grupos capitalistas que usam a imagem da presidente Dilma Rousseff (uma ex-guerrilheira dos tempos da ditadura militar que se corrompeu como todo político brasileiro que alcança certo grau de poder) para criar um senso de ordem na população ignorante de que a Copa do Mundo é necessária, ainda há uma parcela considerável da população brasileira que desconhece a verdade. Isso porque o único acesso que eles tem à informação é através da mídia corrupta que inventa mentiras e esconde a verdade porque ela não só defende os interesses desses grupos como vai lucrar com a realização do evento: a Rede Globo de televisão, o maior câncer do setor de mídia no Brasil, que apoiou a ditadura militar nos anos de 60 e 70 e agora apoia a ditadura capitalista que se instalou após a queda do regime militar no começo dos anos 80.

A Copa do Mundo é necessária para quem?
Para políticos vagabundos e corruptos como os governadores do Rio de Janeiro Sergio Cabral e de São Paulo Geraldo Alckmin, que embolsaram milhões de dólares em contratos ilícitos e obras superfaturadas? Para as empreiteiras Odebrecht e Andrade Gutierrez que faturaram milhões de dólares com contratos superfaturados para a realização de obras inúteis nas cidades-sedes e estádios que não vão ser finalizados a tempo do início dos jogos? Para a FIFA que embolsa milhões de dólares com os direitos de transmissão e publicidade durante os jogos? Para a Rede Globo que vai ser a única emissora de TV a transmitir os jogos da Copa? Para os clubes de futebol que herdarão os estádios utilizados para a Copa do Mundo? Para as imobiliárias que venderão os imóveis construídos em áreas que foram valorizadas por estarem próximo aos estádios ou sofreram obras de melhoria – isso depois que os antigos moradores foram expulsos desses locais por conta da especulação imobiliária? Com certeza.

Mas a desculpa é que a Copa do Mundo vai trazer turistas que vão gastar rios de dinheiro no país. Sim, mas vão gastar com hotéis, restaurantes e serviços, cujos proprietários já tem dinheiro. Além disso, daqui a um mês todos os turistas vão embora e o faturamento desses setores voltará ao normal. Um mês de lucro para um ou outro setor da economia de um país justifica tamanho gasto com a realização de um evento como uma Copa do Mundo?

Sim, se existe corrupção como a que existe no Brasil. Se não fosse uma vantagem para esses políticos corruptos, não haveria Copa do Mundo no Brasil. Se tem, é porque algumas (poucas) pessoas estão lucrando (muito) com o evento: políticos, donos de emissoras de TV, donos de empreiteiras e grupos de empresários que controlam os principais produtos e serviços oferecidos no país.

Pense bem: por que o Brasil foi escolhido para sediar a Copa do Mundo mesmo com todas as dificuldades e carências do país para realizar eventos desse porte? Por que a FIFA é boazinha e queria dar a Copa do Mundo para o Brasil? NÃO. Porque nenhum país civilizado e desenvolvido do mundo se interessou em sediar a Copa do Mundo porque eles sabem por conta de experiências passadas que sediar grandes eventos esportivos como esse só provoca caos e prejuízos. Além disso, os outros países também interessados ofereciam condições piores do que o Brasil.

E as melhorias nas cidades que vão sediar os jogos?
Que melhorias? Expulsar as pessoas de suas casas para construir lojas e estacionamentos e depois vender tudo para a especulação imobiliária? Mandar polícia e exército ocupar áreas estratégicas dessas cidades com a desculpa de garantir a segurança dos turistas quando na verdade a função desses agentes é aterrorizar a população para que não realizem protestos violentos contra as mentiras dos governos e a realização da Copa do Mundo como os de junho e julho do ano passado? Todas as cidades que vão sediar jogos da Copa estão sendo abaladas por greves, protestos, aumento da violência e não receberam nenhum investimento em saúde, educação e transporte público.

Copa para quem?
Para o negro pobre da favela que vai ver sua seleção jogar pela televisão ou para o branco rico que pode pagar um ingresso caríssimo para assistir os jogos da Copa dentro dos estádios? Um desafio caso você for assistir os jogos pela TV: tente achar um negro nas arquibancadas dos estádios. Para o vendedor ambulante que vai vender picolé e água (porque a venda de bebida alcoólica é proibida no entorno dos estádios) e pode até ter duas semanas de lucro, mas e depois que a Copa acabar? Para o cidadão que vai ter sua rotina drasticamente alterada com ruas interditadas, dezenas de obras inacabadas e serviços superfaturados por conta do aumento da demanda por esses produtos e serviços?

Copa do Mundo? Se isso fosse bom para alguém, todos os países do mundo iriam querer realizar uma.
