Resistance to the 2010 Olympic games in British Columbia, Canada, began with last year’s string of direct actions and protests (see EF!J July-August 2007). As it becomes clearer that the Olympics are already causing evictions, homelessness, industrial development and environmental destruction, the resistance continues to grow. In the first few months of 2008, a wide variety of militant actions and public demonstrations have already taken place. As most groups engaged in the resistance have vowed, things are sure to escalate in the coming months. Here is a quick roundup of what’s been happening recently.
The 2008 Great Lakes Anarchist Gathering will be taking place in one month, June 7th & 8th, in Toledo, Ohio.
Kent, OH – Four activists charged with misdemeanors for protesting the war on Iraq by occupying the Main St. bridge will appear in court May 8 at 8:15 a.m.
The Kent State Anti-War Committee is planning a campaign to have the charges dropped. Members plan to pack the courtroom with supporters, as well as hold a demonstration outside to defend the activists' right of expression.
