Brazil leader slams 'campaign' against World Cup

A commuter is seen at the Itaquera station during a Metro workers strike, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on June 5, 2014A subway strike snarling Brazil’s biggest city before the World Cup entered a third day Saturday as President Dilma Rousseff denounced a “systematic campaign” against her government and the tournament. Some roads were congested in Sao Paulo and commuters fumed in long bus lines in the latest labor upheaval to hit Brazil with just five days until the mega-city hosts the opening game. Police, teachers and bus drivers have also staged strikes in other cities in recent months to demand better wages, while protestors angry at the World Cup’s $11 billion bill have staged demonstrations. Officials are bracing for potential protests during the tournament, fearing a repeat of the violent demonstrations that marred the Confederations Cup last year.
