THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

21 June ~ The start of the 2013 Confederations Cups in Brazil, a warm-up to their hosting of the World Cup next year, has sparked protests across the country. Thousands of Brazilians are taking to the streets to question whether the competition is the best use of their money when there are such poor housing conditions, high rates of illiteracy and a lack of medical care among other problems. The All About Angles blog has collated various videos, photos and articles to show the scale of, and reasons behind, the protests. You can watch the video "No, I'm not going to the World Cup" below.
