    again, I'd like the links, because in some measure that violent crackdown has occurred to dislodge the drug gangs whose wars have made the favelas an unbelievable violent place to live.  More recently, the national and Rio state governments have made significant efforts to provide services and title to some of these areas.  

    So if by "violent crackdown" you mean actual policing against heavily armed gangs, yeah, I guess you could say that.

    Touch all that arises with a spirit of compassion. An activist seeks to change opinion.
