The "international" Rio And one of our dangerous neighbors: They are all welcome!

Subway in Rio with decoration for the World Cup

Tony. that's what I call file footage.

Rio do have riots or/and violence, will have them for some/long time, because it's a big city in an developing country with a lot of challenge to solve. But, this does not means Rio is a war zone like British media is selling...

And English FA shouldn't be freaking out about Rio... Last year, when English team spent a week in Rio for a friendly, nothing happened to any English, nor Brazilian... nor NOBODY.

That was the first riot in 20-30 Years in London. The Media probably are exaggerating the issues in Rio.

The protests/rioting of last june (the big ones) were the first in 20 years in Rio too...

One thing is big protests, other thing are strikes, some minor protests, people carrying banners for several demands, I think this is part of the life of many big cities around the world...

Fair enough. I agree.

As a matter of coincidence, bus drivers in Rio started a strike and there were some small rioting in Downtown Rio...

Already guessing international press...

"Will Rio have buses during the world cup?"

"Bus drivers puts Rio organization of World Cup in doubts"

"Strike and lack of buses raises doubts about Rio ability to host big events"

This looks silly and desperate on your part, Danny. In terms of crime and governance London and Rio are not on a par.

For sure they are not on a par. London is better in security than Rio. Never said othewise, did I?

I only posted the picture to show how file images can lead to misunderstood in news. I made a lot of complaints about this with pictures from the stadiums in the World Cup. International press uses old pictures or pictures taken in a certain angle to make their points...

I remember ESPN using a picture of Brasilia stadium in initial works to claim Brazil is delayed this year... Brasilia stadium was finished in 2012 and opened the Confederations Cup last year (the stadium hosted 4 matches successfully).

Not to mention the classic picture from BBC showing Beira Rio stadium in an angle that stadium looked like almost abandoned. All to claim that stadium would never be ready for the World Cup. Funny, the stadium hosted a major Continental Cup match the next wednesday after the report - and, how can be, the stadium is ready!

Is the international media desperate too?

And Athensfan, stick to your (mostly good) arguments... Not to me. Stop "you are desperate", "you are naive", "you are a moron". Why every single topic here must be bended to myself?

Isn't there a strike threat by the Fedtal Police also?

Yes, 24 hour protest was held yesterday, but they are back to work.

Today only Bus drivers in Rio, and probably in the next days we will see some syndicates using the spotlight of International media to get some attention. Indeed, Policia Federal one. They are saying if their wages are not raised they will start a strike or a "turtoise operation" (to slow even more their operation) during the World Cup...

Brasilia Stadium wasn't completed in 2012. The only 2 World Cup/Confederations Cup Venues completed in 2012 was Mineirao in Belo Horizonte and Castelao in Fortaleza. Brasilia was Complete in May 2013.

The structural works were done in December 2012, but it doesn't matter.

To post in 2014 Brasilia stadium picture in works to make a point is really not-professional.

That last sentence I agree with. But, National Stadium in Brasilia was fully Completed in May 2013. Otherwise, you could say Arena Baxaida in Curitiba is ready now, because the Structure is Complete. But the Stadium is still Under Construction.

Looks unfinished to me ;)(sarcasm)

It might be, soon Tony find some news about one restroom where the water was not available (and of course, the place was closed after the report) to claim the Airport is not ready, despite the 14 flights that used the terminal today.

2014 FIFA World Cup Expected To Add $3.03 Billion To Brazil's Economy

An estimated 3.7 million people are expected to travel throughout Brazil during the 2014 FIFA World Cup, and it is believed that the average foreign tourist will attend four World Cup matches and spend approximately $2,488 during his or her stay in Brazil. The economic windfall for Brazil based on the influx of visitors is estimated to add roughly $3.03 billion to Brazil’s economy.

The aforesaid statistics were revealed in research findings by Brazil’s Ministry of Tourism. ”The tourism spending being forecast based on the surveys conducted by Brazil’s Ministry of Tourism do not include the indirect and induced financial transactions resulting from these visitors,” added Minister of Tourism Vinicius Lages. ”In other words, the total financial turnover for tourism during the 2014 FIFA World Cup may be more than double the anticipated figure if we consider the multiplier effect of these resources in the Brazilian economy.”

In order to determine its World Cup projections, Brazil’s Ministry of Tourism considered the average spending of tourists at last year’s FIFA Confederations Cup and the proportion of people staying with relatives and friends during the event. The base for the projections is a survey conducted by Brazil’s Ministry of Tourism in partnership with the Economic Research Institute Foundation (FIPE). FIPE’s previous metrics on Domestic Tourist Demand and International Tourist Demand were also elements used in projecting average spending by Brazilian and foreign tourists, respectively.

1.9 million of the 3.7 million people expected to travel throughout Brazil during the 2014 FIFA World Cup are those believed to actually attend World Cup matches and FIFA Fan Fests. The other 1.8 million estimated visitors are believed to be traveling to Brazil to enjoy festivities linked to the World Cup.
