PROTESTORS EVACUATED: LA AFICION reported Rio de Janeiro's Military Police on Monday evacuated a building next to the Maracana stadium that was "occupied by indigenous citizens and demonstrators." During the operation, "25 people were arrested for refusing to leave the building." Brazil's regional government "indicated that the invaded building was one of four that the state of Rio de Janeiro bought to build temporary structures that will be complementary to the stadium during the World Cup and later converted into a Football Museum" (LA AFICION, 12/16).
