  • Muy buena la presentación de este trabajo,pero el tema de las
    Favelas no es solo de Río de Janeiro,sino de aquellos paises
    donde la droga reina y no en todos lugares es combatida como
    corresponde.Ejemplo positivo,Colombia con su presidente Santos.
    Negativos:Argentina,Bolivia,México,entre otros.

  • I was reading about these Favelas,one of the articles said ,In every slum, there are plenty of friendly, hardworking locals who are as much a part of Rio's culture as their wealthier neighbors.

    An excellent presentation,thank you Olga,lets hope their life will improve in time.Bravo,a big hug.

Transcript

  • 1. .
  • 2. Favelas of Rio de Janeiro While preparing for the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics, Rio de Janeiro has been implementing an innovative safety program called “UPP,” Police Pacification Unit. UPPs are permanent police posts installed in the “favelas,” the sprawling shantytowns that house hundreds of thousands of the city residents. Their mission is to maintain control of favela territory once the local drug trade has been expelled. While many believe the UPPs have helped to quell the violence and bring prosperity to the favelas, others see the Pacification program as a temporary cover-up to Rio’s problems with social disparity.
