Brazil's World Cup protest mascot

A protest version of the 2014 World Cup mascot Fuleco has been taking part in demonstrations in Rio de Janeiro since Carnival in February.

He was created by a group of activists called Occupy World Cup who use art in their demands for social change in Rio.

The satirical mascot is dressed to look like a member of the mafia and is called Tatu Derrado - a play on the Portuguese word for armadillo, "tatu", meaning that everything is wrong.

Julia Carneiro met one of the mascot's supporters to get a closer look.
