Blame it on Rio

 Real Change - USA 08 September 2019

The recent football World Cup in Brazil displaced thousands of poor Brazilians and in 2016 the Olympics threatens to do the same when the South American nation plays host to the world again. US sports Journalist Dave Zirin speaks to Hart Horner of Real Change about his new book, “Brazil’s Dance with the Devil: The World Cup, the Olympics, and the Fight for Democracy”, which explains the South American country’s unique bond between soccer and politics, and how the excitement and prestige of major sporting events is used to justify chilling levels of security and human rights abuses. (2775 Words) - By Hart Hornor
