THE STORY:

This reporting project will focus on events taking place as a result of the city’s preparations for the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympic games, with particular attention to the abrupt social changes taking place in Rio. This project focuses specifically on covering forced evictions (remoçoes) in Rocinha, and a dozen other Carioca favelas, as well as the rapid gentrification (valorizacao) of Rio’s city center and Zona Sul, in the wake of preparations for these mega-events. Beyond the euphoria of winning these international bids is the reality that Rio’s marginalized communities will pay the heftiest price to host events they cannot afford to attend, in a city increasingly hostile to them.
