Okay people, it's crunch time. The Olympics are here, and whatever reasons you have to oppose them, the time has come to get your voice heard.
I am posting below the schedule of events put together by the admirable people of the Olympic Resistance Network.
The rally on Friday February 12 at 3 PM at the Vancouver Art Gallery is a must-attend. I hear it will be peaceful, fiesty, family-friendly, creative, fun -- and BIG. If you can only attend one event, this is it.
The Los Angeles Times has captured the historic meaning of the olympic resistance movement in Vancouver when it recently wrote:
While past Olympics have been magnets for protests over issues such as aboriginal rights in Australia and oppression in Tibet, the Vancouver Winter Games are preparing to host one of the biggest displays ever of organized opposition to the Olympics themselves.
Vancouver is starting a new global movement, one that will continue in London and all other Olympic-plagued cities after that. A movement that says: we don't want the Olympics corporate franchise anymore, anywhere. We just want it abolished, period.
Make sure you're part of history. See you there!
