bairrosfelipe Posted February 6, 2015 Report Share Posted February 6, 2015 The slums are a reality in Brazil. In Rio, 14% of population lives in favelas (IBGE, Census 2010). (Rio City Hall says 16%) http://exame.abril.com.br/brasil/noticias/sao-paulo-e-metropole-com-mais-moradores-de-favelas-do-brasil-segundo-o-ibge Let's stick to correct information, Felipe, please, we are tired of favela-poor-misery-third world bullshit in threads. We, Brazilians, don't like to see our entire country reduced to Amazon forest when in fact we have dozens of unique ecossystems... From Atlantic Forest already said to Cerrado (Brazilian Savannah) or Pantanal (Swamps Region) or the Pampas.... Amazon Forest is huge, but it's only one part of North-Northwest Brazil. That's the pitch Rio-OCOG is using since the victory in Copenhagen years ago. I don't think any favela will be built, maybe indirect references (like music or art), but I can't imagine poor housing being featured as a national or local pride... This would be a reason for huge boooing from the stadium... Yeah, sorry by ignorance. Anyway i think this a chance of Rio and Brazil show the good side of lifestyle in slums. Slums in Brazil have a lot of families in medium class and a amazing culture. It is not just violence and poverty. Of course the center of ceremony cant be the slums. I just think this a theme need be showed. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
