Upheaval In Brazil

Upheaval In Brazil

As protests continue in Brazil over government corruption and crumbling infrastructure, Kojo and guests explore how grievances about high bus fares and expensive soccer stadiums sparked discontent in the rising global power.

Tens of thousands of Brazilians have flooded the streets in the last two weeks, protesting bus fares as well as poor-quality health care and education and massive spending on new soccer stadiums. As Brazil prepares for the World Cup in 2014, Kojo explores what impact the protests could have on the country's political and economic landscape.
