Campaigners demanding a "fair" 2014 World Cup in Brazil handed a 28,000-signature petition to football's global governing body FIFA Monday, amid mass protests in the host nation over poor public services and graft.
Solidar Switzerland said it was time to "blow the whistle" on FIFA boss Sepp Blatter, who is from the Alpine country.
"Evictions, human rights violations and exploitation are overshadowing preparations for the world championship. The people affected are those already living in poverty," it said.
