Housing protesters occupy land near Brazil World Cup soccer stadium

“Thousands of families have begun occupying an empty lot near the site of next month’s opening match of the FIFA World Cup, demanding affordable new housing and protesting government expenditures on the international soccer tournament. In less than a week, the protest organized by Brazil’s Homeless Workers’ Movement, or MTST, has drawn an estimated 7,000 people, persuading President Dilma Rousseff to hold an emergency meeting in which she said she would consider turning the hillside land over to them for housing construction.”
