Bay Area and Brazilian Solidarity in Fight Against Gentrification & Evictions
Wed Jul 2 2014
SF Queer Anarchists Blockade the Google/FIFA Pride Float In Solidarity with Brazilians
In solidarity with Brazilians protesting the FIFA Would Cup, on June 29 a group of 12 queer radicals blockaded the Google FIFA Float at the San Francisco Pride Parade. "We couldn't pass up the opportunity to connect issues of gentrification and evictions in the Bay Area with the violent displacement of Brazilians who live in the Favelas. The Google/FIFA float was a perfect target for direct action to raise awareness about these issues!"

The World Cup has evicted over 150,000 working class and poor people from their communities, with some being killed in the process. El Sindicato dos Metroviários de São Paulo (or Subway Workers Union of Sao Paulo) was violently attacked by police when they went on strike against the World Cup and for better wages and benefits.

A solidarity demonstration is planned for the Subway Workers on Thursday, July 3 at 4pm at the Brazilian Counsulate in San Francisco.
