The People's Gateway for the World Cup and the Olympics [1] [pt] has been launched to monitor forced evictions, government misconducts [2] and violations of human rights due to the major urban changes planned for the mega-events of 2014 and 2016. The website was created by a national coalition of committees advocating for the rights of poor communities in the host cities.
