Brazilian President Dilma Roussef has vowed not to allow street protests to disrupt the World Cup, but the country’s citizens are largely dissatisfied with a government that spent an estimated $14 billion on a soccer tournament. A recent poll found that 72 percent of Brazilians are unhappy with their country's situation, while six out of 10 citizens believe the World Cup is bad for the Brazilian economy.

Street demonstrations have plagued Brazil for months, as angry citizens protest the decision to spend so much on the World Cup while leaving myriad domestic issues unresolved. In May, more than 20,000 people affiliated with Movimento dos Trabalhadores Sem-Teto, or Homeless Workers’ Movement, took to the streets of São Paulo, disrupting traffic for more than 150 miles.

I’m actually really amazed that this isn’t a Human Rights violation.

When would this be okay?
