Midia Ninjas


As the world was preparing to watch the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Brazilians had taken over the streets protesting the record breaking costs of the games. Due to the tough police response and the official media coverage, a new form of citizen journalism emerged.

The best known group is Midia Ninja, a national collective made up of hundreds of young volunteers.
