Famous luxury hotel Copacabana Palace Hotel in Rio de Janeiro — the headquarters of FIFA in Brazil — became a canvas for messages of protest against the World Cup on June 29, 2014. Activists projected facts and figures about the consequences of hosting the mega sports event for Brazilians, such as forced evictions to make way for infrastructure construction.
Coletivo Projetação (a combination of the Portuguese words project, projection and action), a collective that occupies public spaces as a form of political expression, claimed responsibility for the protest. The collective has carried out several similar actions in the last few months in other cities of Brazil and abroad. Visit their Facebook page and the website Projetacao.org for more photos.
