Forced evictions to make way for the development of facilities for Rio 2016 cause heartache for local citizens.
The Olympic Park for the 2016 Games is going up in one of Rio's wealthiest areas, and real estate prices are soaring even as Brazil enters a recession.
Smack up against the rising girders, on the far edge of the Olympic venue, sits a favela called Vila Autodromo. Most of the houses and businesses there have been bulldozed into rubble to make way for the games.
A free-standing stairway sits in the open air. Only the house is missing. In an abandoned house that's upright, a ragged hole exposes a pastel-painted child's room. The fallout from the wrecking ball scatters pulverised bricks, broken mirrors and shards of ceramic blue tiles.
It's a ghost town, expect that 150 families of the original 700 have refused to budge, or take compensation or alternative new housing. Electricity and public services have been periodically cut off, and fights broke out last week when guards entered firing pepper spray and rubber bullets to start an eviction.
The standoff underscores some of the resistance to Olympics-related developments in Rio with its stark divide between the rich and poor.
"The Olympic Games are two weeks, and when it's over that Olympic area is going to be a neighbourhood with shopping malls and gated communities," Maria da Pehna, a 50-year-old woman who is heading up resistance to evictions, said.
"So after the Olympics, why can't I continue in my home where I have lived for 23 years?"
Pehna's nose was broken and her eye was blackened last week when she was shoved to the ground as residents clashed with guards trying to carry out an eviction. She said she's expecting more violence as the holdouts get more entrenched with the games set to start in 14 months.
"I imagine that I will get beaten again," she said Tuesday. "Because I will continue to resist for my rights."
A tiny woman, Pehna lives just 100 metres from the Olympics construction. Her house, like many which started as modest slum dwelling, has grown into a spacious two-floor layout with a patio, fruit trees and a large terrace overlooking the Olympic venue.
"I have the hope to be here when the Olympics begin, and I will fight to be here," she said.
Theresa Williamson, a Brazilian urban planner and advocate for Rio's favela communities, said about 67,000 people in favelas have been evicted in Rio since the city was awarded the Olympics in 2009. She said there were "hardly any" evictions in the 20 years prior.
Much of the sprawling Olympic Park will be transformed afterward into commercial developments.
The Athletes Village, 2 kilometres (1.5 miles) away, has 3,600 apartments that will be sold off as top-end housing. Up the road, the new Olympic golf course is surrounded by 160 luxury apartments starting in the $2 million range.
