Countering the Olympics public meeting
Fed up with Olympic Impunity? Don’t Agonise—Organise
Countering the Olympics – A public meeting
28 January 2012 10.30-5pm
Toynbee Hall London E1 6LS
There are now fewer than seven months before the shenanigans hit town, with each day bringing more news about runaway finances, contaminated topsoil, privatised housing, militarised neighbourhoods, losses of basic liberty, corruption, undemocratic planning decisions…. This will be a day-long investigation of all aspects of Olympic theft and opportunity for those of us adversely affected to share, network, strategise and make our voices heard in 2012 and beyond.
Topics explored will include thematic objections to Olympic cost, debt, repression, pollution, displacement and lack of consultation, and will include contributions from a range of UK and international activist groups, from NOGOE and Save Wanstead Flats to Vancouver and Athens organisations.
Cost: Donations on the door. There will be a low cost lunch available on the day.
Bookings: email@example.com Please note: Some places will be available on the day. However space is limited so please book early to ensure a place. If you indicate a particular interest (eg Olympic effect on housing, parks, waterways, civil liberties, debt) it will give us a better idea of space allocation for workshops.
