Unfortunately, peaceful protests are just about unheard of in Brazil. They know exactly who’s to blame, and instead of protesting peacefully and voting for someone else in the next elections, they rather hurt themselves by destroying their own town. The stadiums have already been built, the money has already been spent, it would behoove them to attend the matches and make the best of selling the world cup to tourists for their own profit.

Estimated number of people at the protests = 1.700
Population of São Paulo city = about 11.32 million
It’s amazing how a few flames can quickly become inflammatory.
