Not a Friendly Game: Sidelined by the World Cup, Natal; Brazil
A photo story by Anne Paq documenting the struggle of some inhabitants of Natal, from the Nordeste region, in Brazil as they come under threat of being displaced because of the upcoming 2014 World Cup. Across the country, between 150,000 and 170,000 people will be displaced because of the World Cup. In Natal only, more than 1,000 persons and more than 100 businesses will be affected, for the sake of only 4 football games due to be held in the city. As in other cities affected by the World Cup, people in Natal threatened with expropriation of their land or eviction are mobilizing.
