But the "unrest" is because of Brazil being the venue for the World Cup. Those who are (rightly IMO) dissatisfied with the state of the country are using the fact that Brazil is in the spotlight to highlight to the world the inequities and inadequacies of the educational and health systems, and the corruption in the political system, in the hope that the government may be sufficiently embarrassed to actually do something to fix a long-broken system.
So, no World Cup no unrest?

For now, I would suggest holding off on buying airfare, making reservations for a hotel, and buying tickets to soccer games.
