          Some slum squatters are defying Brasilia's grand schemes to transform Rio and other cities...for the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics.
         They have gone to court...and even into the streets....using social media to win support and slow the rush to demolish and develop favelas/slums...that shelter some 170,00 people.
