World Cup shows what is wrong with the world

Grown men paid millions to play a game. People burning through millions of gallons of jet fuel to watch them. Luxury hotels and limousines. Millions spent on media coverage.

Meanwhile people are hungry. People are being bombed. Floods and drought are everywhere.

Let's spend our money on a transition away from waste and inequality. Make public transit fare-free, make cities carfree, urbanize, degrow, and de-carbonize.

The free fare movement in Brazil is protesting the world cup and calling for free public transit. The international movement for free public transport is calling to people around the world to support these protests.
