Marauders Are Overwhelming Beaches in Rio as Brazil Takes a Dangerous Turn

Marauders Are Overwhelming Beaches in Rio as Brazil Takes a Dangerous Turn | Sustainability Science | Scoop.it
The return of violent mobs to Rio's most populated beaches is a sign of what's to come. And none of it's good.
PIRatE Lab's insight:

The beaches of Rio have long been a place where tourists and the well off could be relatively confidant that the poor would not show up (or at least not do so visibly on the highest "rent" locales).  This appearrs to be changing and falling back into some of the anarchy and in-your-face inequality that has in recent years been motly confined to the hillside slums.  

 

It is clear from my travels and work over the past many years that inequality and corruption must be solved and justly addressed before any true semblance of effective management can be brought to bear across any particular segment of the coastal zone.
