Protesters Burns Mounds Ahead of the Match Between Brazil and japan.

Brazil’s opening match against Japan witnessed a series of protests that left 39 people injured.

The demonstrators came out in mass to vent their anger at the amount of money the country is spending on staging the Confederations Cup and the World Cup.

Police used tear gas and pepper spray to control about 1000 Brazilians before the opening game against Japan, there were also rubber bullets fired as 30 arrests were made.

Posters and placards reading: “We don’t need the World Cup” and “We need money for hospitals and Education” were held up high by the protesters.

Only the Stadium in Brasilia has been said to cost around £380m with more than 90% of the money coming from public fund, when the organizers explicitly told the Brazilian society in 2007 that they were going to build the stadium with private money.

The society now feels cheated as it has not worked out as planned and many consider the World Cup as a ploy by corrupt government officials to do away with public money.
