Group protests in Brazil intensified hours before World Cup

  • Protestors took to the streets in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro only hours before the World Cup match and shouted "There won't be a Cup." However, it appears that their wish did not come true as TV images show that the police unleashed tear gas on those who were protesting. 

    About 100 people protested and the number was quite little as compared to last year's event, which saw the protest of millions of people into the streets.  The protests unleashed because the masses can see millions spent on the event, but not for the betterment of the society and its people.

    Media reports suggest that two journalists were injured, but it is not clear if any protestor was hurt.
