Brazil calls for housing spend

June 04 2014
Homeless Worker’s Movement blocked roads to the stadium and set buses alight

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).
