The Olympics are set to open in a bit over a month in Rio, and already there’s trouble. The drug-testing lab, for instance, has been suspended for violating international standards, and I have no idea what will happen if it’s not fixed before the games begin. But the stuff in the video below, presented by Vox, is even worse, and, if true—I’m not vouching for it completely—shows a nefarious pattern of simply hiding the poor of the city from the well-heeled visitors, as well as enriching Rio’s fat cats by taking land from the poor.
To be sure, the video does say that other infrastructure changes will benefit all residents. But watch the video, for this is not the kind of stuff you’re going to see during NBC’s Olympic coverage.
