As an early kickoff to the May 15th "Day Against the World Cup," a McDonalds location in Oakland was vandalized overnight. McDonalds is not only a sponsor of the FIFA World Cup, which has fueled rampant poverty throughout Brazil leading up to the June 2014 event, they are also a sponsor of the Olympics, which will come to Rio in 2016. Thousands of people have been forcibly displaced, with a rising death toll, to make way for the spectacle of the World Cup.
