Resources on Our Olympic Times

Dissent has been eloquent and forthcoming from left, right and liberal directions. From the inept private Olympic security firm (G4S) that likes to run detention centres for Palestinian children by the Israeli Apartheid Wall, to the missiles installed on East London Housing, from the brand policing that makes you want to puke to the disturbing sound of the London Mayors stupid voice blathering at you on every mode of public transport, you'd be forgiven for thinking this was a huge joke about how superficial we are.
