Brazilians Take Their Rage To The Streets Following Elimination

Civil unrest is common in Latin American nations after a rough soccer loss, and this was no exception in Brazil following Germany’s 7-1 thrashing over the host nation. Already in Sao Paulo – home of tomorrow’s semifinal clash between Argentina and Netherlands – buses are being set on fire by enraged fans.

The country was already uneasy leading up to the start of the tournament, but the protests never matched last year’s movement during the FIFA Confederations Cup. Although we advocate change to many things in Brazil, let’s hope that things don’t escalate from here on out, especially Sunday in Rio de Janeiro, where the final between Germany and the winner of Argentina-Netherlands will play.
