Brazil calls for housing spend

 
June 5th 2014
 

With just weeks until the 2014 World Cup, homeless demonstrators and their supporters have taken place in a series of high-profile protests.

The protesters from the Homeless Worker’s Movement have blocked roads to the stadium and set buses alight, angry that its government is spending so much on the football tournament while failing to invest in housing and education.

It is claimed that some 11 million people in Sao Paulo's metropolitan area are living in slum-like conditions.

The latest estimates put the final bill of hosting the football tournament at an estimated $60 billion (£36bn).
