Brazil braces for busy 2014

With FIFA World Cup and presidential elections coming up, protesters may bring their discontent onto the streets again.

    With the World Cup coming up in June and national elections to be held in October, 2014 is poised to be a big year for Brazil.

    Yet the event that may overshadow all others is a mass uprising against the government. Last year, thousands of Brazilians took part in violent protests across the country to express their grievances about several social and political issues.

    The World Cup is expected to ignite those frustrations all over again, making 2014 the year when politics butts heads with football.
