Also, this is happening in Brazil right now.

The number of protestors country-wide has reached (and likely surpassed) 1 million as of this posting. The people are protesting the massive amount of money the current government is pouring into international events like the World Cup, while offering their citizens little to no care in terms of housing, food, or other social programs. Many citizens of Rio have been forcibly evicted from their homes to make way for stadium construction, and they were offered no money, alternate housing, or warning.

While I could offer dozen links to news stories and the latest updates, admittedly the most up-to-date and thorough information can be found right here in this Reddit thread. It includes insight into the issue, live updates, and even feedback from people near the events.

Best of luck, people of Brazil! After all:

People shouldn’t be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.” - V
