Chaos has ensued in Brazil as Anti-World Cup strikes, riots and protests is ravaging the country.

According to the BBC News, "A public transport strike has caused traffic chaos in Brazil's largest city, Sao Paulo, a week before it hosts the opening match of the World Cup."

The World Cup in Brazil appears likely to turn into a terrible public relations disaster for the nation.
