A historic building used by Indigenous People growing food is more interesting than a fast food joint or parking lot. Show tourist what can be done growing food in an urban setting, relocate the parking lot.

Noted, Thank you Cal.

The fact the Brazilian gvmt is blaming FIFA for the attempts to move population block doesn't surprise me, the antagonism of the gvmt towards the indigenous groups is long-standing known issue ... There are no *ex-colonies", only *former* colonies ... to paraphrase the jar-head slogan.

world cup is for entertainment and on cost of entertainment if indigenous people force to make refugee than what is the meaning of civil society
