The 2010 Winter Olympics will take place on unceded indigenous land from
February 12-28 2010. Far from being simply about ‘sport’, the history of
the Olympics is one rooted in displacement, corporate greed, fascism,
repression, and violence. Only the political and corporate elite – from
real estate developers to security corporations – have anything to gain
from the Olympics industry. The effects of the upcoming Winter Games have
already manifested themselves- with the expansion of sport tourism and
resource extraction on indigenous lands; increasing homelessness and
gentrification of poor neighborhoods; increasing privatization of public
services; union busting through imposed contracts and exploitative
conditions especially for migrant labour; the fortification of the
national security apparatus; ballooning public spending and public debt;
and unprecedented destruction of the environment.

The Olympics Resistance Network is primarily based in Vancouver, Coast
Salish Territories and exists as a space to coordinate anti-2010 Olympics
efforts. In doing so, we act in solidarity with other communities across
'BC' - particularly indigenous communities who have been defending their
land against the onslaught of the Olympics since the bid itself. Our
organizing is largely being done under the slogan of "No Olympics on
Stolen Native Land", while creating an opportunity for all
anti-capitalist, indigenous, anti-poverty, labour, migrant justice,
environmental justice, anti-war, and anti colonial activists to come
together to confront this two-week circus and the oppression it
