World Cup Protesters, Indigenous Tribes Unite against Brazilian Police

The country has been no stranger to anti-World Cup demonstrations, from Brasilia, to Sao Paolo and Rio de Janeiro, from activists angry at the multi-billion cost of staging the tournament in a country where the poorest 34% receive less than 1.2% of the nation’s income.

Brasilia’s stadium will cost roughly three times the price tag first budgeted, approximately 1.9 billion reais (£500m), a report from city auditors said last week.

Though smaller than the million-strong protests that rocked the South American nation during 2013, never before have demonstrations taken on this colour, as activists were joined by 300 indigenous protesters who had been staging a separate sit-in at Congress demanding land rights.

The tribesmen are known for their Brasilia protests outside government buildings, but this is the first time they have joined the social change activists charge against the World Cup.

One policeman was reportedly shot in the leg by an arrow fired from the bow of an indigenous protestor, Huff Post correspondents at the Brasil Post reported, with protesters aiming their weapons at the Congress building, then at police.

John Green is an “easy target” because he’s a smug elitist and a passive-aggressive bully. he’s a sniveling little weasel who feels put upon because his interests are slightly different from those represented as typical for an ideal male subject, but who will never, ever do anything to undermine or betray the inheritance he has received as a result of that subjectivity. instead, he’ll whine about how he’s actually the ideal male subject and everyone would be better off if we accepted that and other men tried to be more like him. see his horrifically sexist pontifications on how “nerd girls are an untapped dating resource” for a good example of this.

Satire can be racist. You don’t just get to say racist shit, call it satire, and say you’re not a racist.

"The myth that “beauty is power” is actually super destructive because it tricks young women into thinking that if men want them, they will be empowered, which is, alas, not true. Because the kind of “power” that comes from having men lust after you is fleeting and holds no real weight in the grand scheme of things. It might make you feel good momentarily, until you realize that men don’t respect you because they like your boobs, nor will your fuckability bring things like political power and freedom from male violence. As long as women are seen as (and see themselves as) pretty, sexy objects, they will continue to to be viewed and treated, primarily, as sex-holes for men (i.e. not full human beings but the kind of beings who were invented for men to use and abuse and play with and then discard when they get bored)."
