Brazil Brazil, We understand your pain's...

25 April 2014, 09:27
We can all remember the hype and rumor's associated with the 'Mighty' World cup. How a nation could be manipulated, Misinformed and used, to generate an excitement that we are still paying for.
1.Talks of certain property value increasing because of the event .2.How people can make so much money off room rentals during the games and on the few weeks before.3. Roads and infrastructure that are being built & improved, for the sake of the event.4. Hotels and so many costly stadiums, we are still paying for them.5. Lastly, the massive revenue that the country will receive.
The truth of it all,
An international rental company scoops the majority of the accommodation sourcing and makes all the money. Locals are left out.
Local traders that were part of the excitement generation, is told, they may not trade near the stadiums, Only Fifa endorsed products may be sold. Again, Fifa takes the biggest chunk of profits. Local traders are left penniless and left out.
We thought the roads around Joburg was money we were getting from the event, and was done for the event, and for our future benefit. 
No, Instead, it was a sham, It turns out our government and a few individuals, Borrowed so many Billions to widen an existing road. They slap up near 40 gantries and plan on stealing money form the people. Increasing the cost of living dramatically, at a time where things are already tough.
I like soccer, its great, But the World Cup is a sham, Its a multi billion pound business and Fifa makes most of the money.

Who on earth needed a stadium with fancy extra's, we just needed the stadium, we did  not need the extra garbage.Not as if Fifa was paying for it .

Seems the Brazilian people are not as naive as we are, But they are not much better off.
Boo to Fifa, Boo to Seb Blatter, and Boo to Zuma..
Disgusting organizations

This man had a mother. A father. He was perhaps a brother, a friend, a lover. This man had a purpose. He had a dream. He had a life. He had laughter and love and hope waiting for him. Read more...
