Brazilian Military deployed, Civil Unrest intensifies 48 hours Before World Cup

09/06/2014 23:21

The Brazilian government has launched one of the largest Military operations since the 1950s. Over 200,000 troops have been deployed all over Brazil in preparation for the World Cup. Meanwhile, around Salvador's Fonte Nova stadium, security forces have been tasked with forcibly removing the homeless. As workers continue to intensify their actions, Amnesty International warns the Brazilian government's response to protests and strikes could lead to indiscriminate violence.

Police locked Sao Paolo metro stations and fired tear gas at protesters as a metro-driver strike paralysed the country, sparking hundreds of miles of traffic jams in major cites presently making final preparations for the World Cup. Over the past year hundreds of thousands took part in massive social unrest at corruption and high prices.
