Mobilization Against Start of Olympic Torch Relay


Mobilization Against Start of Olympic Torch Relay

Against the Tyranny of the Olympic Regime & the Terror of the Torch Relay:

Join the Anti-Olympic Zombie Army for the First Ever ZOMBIE March Against the Olympic Torch Relay

On Friday, October 30, the Olympic Torch Relay begins in Victoria, BC...

2 PM: Anti- Olympic Festival of Resistance
Centennial Square (Government & Blanshard St)

4:30 PM: ZOMBIE March from Centennial Square. Wear Scary costumes (or just costumes!)

From Vancouver to Victoria:
Friday Oct 30, 2009
In Vancouver: 9AM at Safeway (Broadway @ Commercial) for Carpool/Transit—Pay Your Own Way Soldier! [Est: $40 Roundtrip] .

The Olympic Torch relay is sponsored by the Royal Bank of Canada & Coca Cola.

The RBC is one of the main financiers of the Tar Sands oil project in northern Alberta, which is an act of genocide against the Indigenous people of the area, who are suffering extremely high rates of cancers, toxified water and land. The Tar Sands must be shut down & RBC must stop funding genocide!

Coca Cola factories in Columbia have been linked to paramilitary death squads & repression of union organizers; factories in India cause water depletion and environmental contamination. Coca Cola must stop repression of its workers & end its destructive production practises!

The 2010 Winter Olympics has already caused huge increases in homelessness (over 370 percent since Vancouver won the bid in 2003), criminalization of the poor (new by-laws & more police harassment), a massive public debt (estimated at $6 billion), restrictions on civil liberties, environmental destruction (including the Sea-to-Sky Highway & new venues in Whistler), and the establishment of a militarized police state.
