Copa do Povo: Three kilometers from the Arena Corinthians in São Paulo, which hosted the opening match, nearly 5,000 families live in small shacks made of wooden poles and plastic garbage bags. Most of them were made homeless after the sky rising prices on the rents of their houses because of the FIFA World Cup. This is the one of the many other sides of the World Cup.
