Rio's Mare Favela Remains Under Occupation
RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - MARCH 02: Brazilian soldiers keep watch as young residents walk past in the Complexo da Mare 'favela' complex, one of the largest 'favela' complexes in Rio, on March 2, 2015 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Brazilian government has occupied the complex with federal forces since before the start of the 2014 World Cup. The group of 16 communities house around 130,000 residents and have been dominated by drug gangs and militias. Mare is located close to Rio's international airport and is scheduled to receive a Police Pacification Unit (UPP) soon amid the city's efforts to improve security ahead of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
