“Where’s the respect?” Was the question made by FIFA’s leader when the stadium booed at Brazil’s president.
Mr. Blatter, you made this question while sitting in the most expensive stadium toever host a game in the confederations cup.
Of course, this expensive stadium and your fancy hotel and the rich organized parts of Brasilia was all you laid your eyes on, that I am sure.
Meanwhile, in the places you haven’t laid your eyes on, Mr. Blatter, people are fighting their way to survival without any help from anyone.
Meanwhile, kids don’t have a school to go to, don’t have a proper place to live, and in a lot of cases not even food or drinkable water to consume.
People are dying every single day in hospital beds in corridors, because we don’t even have enough hospitals to take care of our people. Some small towns don’t even have doctors. Not one single doctor, not one single hospital.
Our leaders are bragging about how evolved Brazil is, how we must be proud of ourselves, but I don’t want to be proud of this. I see, every single day, in hospitals, in streets, in some parts of my neighbourhood, the many reasons why we shouldn’t be proud of this country.
We don’t want the world cup, we don’t want the olympics, we want our people to be fed, educated, medicated, and have a bed to sleep at night.Simple requests from a desperate people who don’t have a way out of this situation.
But instead, the world cup, money robbery, teachers getting R$8.400 (US$4.200)/ year while politicians get R$300.000 (US$150.000), entire families living out ofR$700 (US$350)/month, corruption, and disrespect is what we’re getting.
So I ask you, Mr. Blatter, and our president, Dilma, and everyone else, where the hell is the respect?
Where’s the respect for our health system? For our education (did you even visit a public school in Brazil, Mr. Blatter? I’m guessing no)? For our people? The people Dilma was supposed to be protecting, representing, taking care of?
We get absolutely no respect. Our government doesn’t respect us, and they don’t deserve our respect. We shall give them what they deserve. (by godsavethewolves)
Foi lindo. Cheguei ao centro de Porto Alegre às 18h15 e quase 10 mil pessoas estavam em frente à prefeitura entoando gritos de desagravo aos disparates brasileiros. Muitos reduzem o evento a uma farra de jovens de classe média contra o aumento da tarifa dos ônibus. Contudo, fora muito mais. Os gritos versaram o descalabro dos gastos públicos com a Copa do Mundo, a fanfarrice da impunidade na política e a arbitrariedade dos políticos cujo poder emana do povo, a quem tanto vilipendiam. Que venham mais protestos desse porte! (by f-u-c-k-b-i-l-d-e-r)
