"The Olympics have a history of leaving host cities in debt, and relocating the poor and homeless away from the sanitized corridors of host cities."

Thousands turned out in downtown Vancouver to protest the games, something not evident on our UK mainstream media. There were arrests following clashes with riot police. Some activists claimed police brutality after they were hit with batons and wrestled to the ground. Several businesses, including Olympic sponsor HBC were attacked.
