July 10th

It's different than Copa do Povo, which is in a major city and was less than 40 days old when the World Cup began.  Ipiranga is in rural Pernumbuco state and is 11 years old and counting.  The residents have been squatting on this little piece of land illegally for 11 years, hoping that one day the property will be granted to them by the government.    Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra is a social movement that occupies large unused land estates for the landless rural population of Brazil.  900 camps like this exist in Brazil.  But this is Ipiranga.  The Ipiranga folks love Ipiranga.  They want to grow there and raise animals.  11 years is a big commitment.  No one really helps them.  The government food supply is 5 months late.  But they're still there.  This has nothing to do with the World Cup at all.  But this is happening in the Brazil too.
