Tourism and protests: Brazil's World Cup preparations

With less than a month to go before the FIFA World Cup kicks off in Brazil, preparations on numerous fronts are well underway. The tourism industry is getting ready for the influx of foreign money as Brazil gears up to host 600,000 foreign tourists for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, which kicks off June 12. But widespread protests throughout the country see thousands of citizens angry with a government they say is more invested in tourism and sport than in improving hospitals, public services and income equality, a theme Brazilian street artist Paulo Ito illustrates in a single image with a now iconic mural. Police and security teams training to quell the anti-government protests that are expected, many of which have already taken place and more of which are almost certainly planned once the games begin.
