Brazil's graffiti art in support of World Cup protest - pt.2

A boy walks in front of graffiti painted against infrastructure work for the 2014 World Cup at the Metro Mangueira slum in Rio de Janeiro.

According to a document released by the popular movement ‘Comite Popular da Copa e Olimpiadas do Rio de Janeiro’(People's Committee of the World Cup and Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro), the preparations for the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro will displace more than 7,185 families from their homes to make way for new sports facilities, bus routes and improvements in tourism infrastructure.

I can't believe this is barely even mentioned in U.S. media. I watched Anthony Bourdain the other night on CNN and he was in Brazil, and I thought for sure he would talk about it, but he mentioned it and kind of skirted over the issue. WTF ?
