Newscast Media SAO PAOLO—As preparations for the 2014 World Cup are under way, Brazilians are unhappy that the government is spending billions of dollars on new stadiums that could have been invested in creating job and small business opportunities for its citizens.  


The frustration has triggered acts of vandalism and protests across Brazil with Sao Paolo, suffering the greatest impact.


According to Russia Today, earlier in June, Brazil was hit with major protests against the Confederation Cup, a rehearsal tournament before the World Cup. More than one million people hit the streets to speak out against corruption and improvised public services.
