  1. oh dear! rattling some peoples' cages. 'Survivor'? Of course you are quite right to point to Qatar, although the same is happening in Rio. I did lose my home to London2012 and had to relocate. To repeat, the Olympics is about lying. The very first time London2012 came to our estate they lied telling us that our homes would be demolished even if the Olympics didn't come to London. But when we asked under Freedom of Information for details of this plan (they actually had a diagram on what the 'plan' involved) we were told by the same organisation that there was no plan! This was confirmed at the
  2. Who cares whether we get traction here! The Winter Olympics 2022 was rejected by every European City which was originally bidding. Ended up with two dictatorships bidding and being won by Beijing which will use artificial snow for the Games! In both Pyeongchang and Beijing they are cutting down valuable forests. Be as proud of the Games as you like. It's an appalling record of hypocrisy given the Third Dimension claim. For the Summer Games 2024 all three cities where there might have been a referendum or was a referendum the Games was rejected. Now only cities which refuse to hold a referendu
  3. Another typical outcome of the Olympics, eviction of poor communities http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/35670737. This is Vila Autodromo but in fact thousands of families have been displaced in the general rush to take advantage of the Olympics to force poor people out of the city into distant suburbs http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/dec/08/rio-olympics-2016-human-rights-violations-report
  4. This article has lots of links to show damage done to environment by Winter Olympics, look back to Vancouver, Sochi and before http://www.gamesmonitor.org.uk/node/2228. Remember the IOC claims to be protecting the environment. Mount Gariwang was a protected forest and it was cut down for a three day event! Gauchos forever!
  5. ...you have to be kidding? A premium member makes such a comment? Gauchos have historical significance in Argentina... you've got to be kidding!
  6. Yet again the Winter Olympics is causing havoc with the environment http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/sep/16/olympic-organisers-destroy-sacred-south-korean-forest-to-create-ski-run. The IOC claims to uphold the environment as its Third Dimension! Same happened at Vancouver and Sochi and is also happening at Beijing2022 http://www.nature.com/news/chinese-biologists-lead-outcry-over-winter-olympics-ski-site-1.18174?from=timeline&isappinstalled=0
