PHOTOS: Brazil protests ahead of Soccer World Cup 2014

These are photos from protests in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, two big cities in Brazil, ahead of that country’s hosting of the Soccer World Cup 2014. Some protesters don’t want the soccer tournament as they claim government spending is being wasted on building stadiums instead of providing locals with much-needed education, healthcare and public services.
