WORLD CUP: WORLD WIDE DEMONSTRATIONS PLANNED FOR TOMORROW
The Brazilian Government has chosen the slogan “The Cup of the Cups” (Copa das Copas) to boost interest and support for the event. As a counterpoint to that, the various groups contrary to the event being held in Brazil have named tomorrow’s stoppage as “The Demonstrations of the Demonstrations”. Simultaneous protests are planned for 50 different locations in Brazil and 15 abroad, including Berlin and London. They are protesting mainly against the amount of money being spent on the tournament in detriment to Education and Health.
They will block the traffic in several major routes in São Paulo (the biggest city in South America), protest in Rio and, most likely, the Capital Brasilia. All their plans are kept secret as there have been a lot of physical confrontation between police and demonstrations, including the death of a TV cameraman in Rio.
