Brazil | Child Prostitutes Will Soar When the World Cup Starts

Brazil | Child Prostitutes Will Soar When the World Cup Starts | Tourism : Collaterals | Scoop.it
As the 2014 World Cup nears, social workers anticipate the number of child sex workers will soar in Sao Paulo, but the Brazilian government hasn't done anything.
Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

The Brazilian government has pledged for the past decade that it will eradicate child prostitution. In 2001, 100,000 children were found to be working in the sex trade, according to estimates by Unicef. In 2012, that number had swelled to an estimated half a million, says a non-governmental organization, the National Forum for the Prevention of Child Labor.

Bye Bye Barcelona

Bye Bye Barcelona is a documentary about a city and it's relationship with tourism, about the difficult coexistence between Barcelona and it's people with tourism and tourists. It is a documentary that exposes through the thoughts of some of it's residents, the grave effects that mass tourism has in the city. You can watch this documentary from beginning to end, or you can watch it through it's chapters and at your own rhythm. It's sole purpose is to serve as counterweight to the much repeated idea that tourism is a win-win business. This documentary is about what we lose because of it.
