FALLING SHORT: The SUNDAY TIMES reported protests "were expected in more than 30 cities, but all except that carried out in São Paulo fell far flat of organizers’ expectations." In Rio de Janeiro, about 50 protesters gathered in front of the Copacabana Palace hotel, "holding signs blasting the World Cup."
