On Wednesday, February 17th, 2010, VIVO (a not for profit media production, exhibition and distribution centre) hosted a night of discussion surrounding a support of a 'diversity of tactics' and the direct action protests against the Olympics that took place on the previous Saturday, entitled 'Heart Attack'.
In this clip, Chris Shaw, a well-known leader in the anti-Olympics movement, and author of Five Ring Circus - The true cost of the Olympic Games, gives his analysis of the actions and their impact on the anti-Olympic movement.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
