Photos: Celebrations and Protests at the 2014 World Cup

June 13, 2014

Protests and celebrations capture the attention of the world as Brazil hosts the 2014 World Cup. Some see it as a chance for the country to show once again that it knows how to throw a party while others see it as a waste of resources when issues like poverty and education need to be addressed.
