The opening party was very bad, but this has no importance because who wants to watch soccer is there to watch soccer.
The phones did not work in the official press room, the 3G network(and its not even 4G yet) dropped even before the game started while outside protester were being attacked by the police and the sound of bombs could be listened on the inside even with the loud music in the stadium in Brasilia that hosted the opening of the Brazil Confederations Cup.
TV monitors at the press tribune had their brand, SempToshiba, covered with black tape because the official sponsor of FIFA was Sony!
But nothing compared to the face of President Dilma Rousseff who was loudly booed when alongside Joseph Blatter, tried to talk, only to be even more booed. Instead of talking, all she could do was say that the Cup was officially open.
This is the price the government pays for being silent on who the iniquities of the country and for making spurious agreements to survive with their predecessors.
But Brazil, it seems, is waking up.
Of course, they will say that it was the white elites that booed the president. And it’s true. But the excluded of Brazil, were just outside of the stadium, getting smashed by the police!
Watch the video as Dilma, the president gets perplexed by the all the booeing. Joseph Blatter, FIFA’s president tries to give people a lesson but he knew it was a lost battle.
This is the peoples answer to a country that spends billions to build stadiums while its people are suffering with the high taxes, high inflation, high prices for everything, high violence rates, high corruption in the government and low, very low pay and public services.
And This is the official beginning of our campaign “Don’t Go to the World Cup in Brazil!”
