15 Photos Of The Angry Anti-FIFA, Anti-World Cup Protest Graffiti Being Daubed All Over Brazil

By Chris Wright

As with the last host nation into which the parasitic, tax-exempt FIFA bandwagon rolled, an awful lot of Brazilians are irate with their government for pumping millions of dollars into the funding of a show-piece, eight-week World Cup instead of little social luxuries such as schools, hospitals, general demilitarisation, the eradication of violence, drugs and weapons from their streets, etc, etc.

As such, many angry residents have taken to graffiti in an attempt to get their message across, with a wide array of “F*ck FIFA!” messages being daubed across walls all over Brazil in the last several months.

These are but a few of them, as collected by Lunatic News – which, slightly strangely, is a Feyenoord Ultras fanzine…

The last image sees a street mural featuring Neymar which has been modified to make the Brazil poster child look like a member of the Black Blocs – a Rio-based activist group who have been heavily involved in the ongoing protest movements against the World Cup.

  2. PetrovskyKSC says:

    the least thing brazil ever needs is that tournament. Hopefully, the population make the world, the players and j. blatt(fuck)er feel what’s going on in their country. Terrifying to admit that I have to watch those games anyway.

  3. Sjakie Meulemans says:

    These are great, most of ’em, very powerful.

  4. Jarren says:

    I don’t know enough about Brazilian poverty and the effect the world cup will have on people, but the images are indeed very moving.

    • StevenR says:

      you only have to see a pic of what a FAVELA is to get the real picture…if you’ve ever played MW2, the Favela there is nothing to compare!

  5. FICK FUFA says:

    I will not be watching a single match, or reading any stories about the World C(ra)p. EVER.

  6. Dave says:

    For anyone who plays CSS ive made some of these into sprays to spread the word

  7. Jon says:

    I am pretty sure the pictures were collected by Lunatic News from this Facebook page:

  8. Cal says:

    This goes to show that the World Cup should be held in the same handful of countries and just kept in rotation. Countries that have the infrastructure (unlike Qatar), the funds and resources (unlike Brazil), or aren’t half of the world (unlike Russia). Keep it to Australia/NZ, USA, England, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Japan. Countries that can properly host (not have the opening match played in a half-finished stadium) and that can handle bringing the amount of people into the country that is required. All FIFA’s fault.

  9. Jarren says:

    I kinda see where you’re coming from Cal, but it is the WORLD cup.

    Every country has the right to host it.

    Of course we can go into moral / financial issues, but it is the WORLD cup.
