Thousands of Brazilians backing a movement to help homeless workers rallied in Sao Paulo late Thursday to protest a lack of housing, shoddy public services and huge spending on the World Cup.
"We are here to protest against the Cup, against the huge spending on the World Cup while we do not have housing or healthcare or anything else," said Luiz Giovani, a member of the movement.
It was the latest in a series of demonstrations in recent weeks by the homeless movement.
The World Cup will cost Brazilian taxpayers $11 billion.
