Anti-Olympix Rally

In is astounding that more highways are being built and elite only development when we are facing Global Climate Change. 4 year countdown until the Olympics is behind us! Like I said in 2003 when the vote was in Vancouver: 7 years of bad luck. But wouldn't it be amazing if Vancouver was the first city to SHUT DOWN the corporate Olympics!? We've already wasted a lot of money and build one more motorway, but it's never too late. The lies about 'green' Olympics are wearing thin. They couldn't win another referendum today.
Monday Feb. 12 @ 12 noon,
at Vancouver Art Gallery

Olympic organizers will be unveiling a 3-year 'Countdown Clock' to 2010 Winter Games. The event will be broadcast live on CTV from 12 noon to 1 PM. This is a prime opportunity to publicly oppose 2010 Corporate Invasion & dislocation of urban poor, Indigenous peoples, etc.

Please distribute to your networks.

There will also be an anti-olympic organizing meeting
Monday Feb 12 at 7 PM, 327 Carrall St. in Vancouver.


Homelessness, Ecological Destruction, Corporate lnvasion of Native lands, Huge Profits for Corporations, Massive Public Debt, Increased Police Repression & Surveillance... Let's Stand Together & Show The World There Is NO TIME for the Olympics!
