Sochi 2014 Resistance

Cooperatives, →2010 Olympics

John Hager and Tamara Barsik from the No Sochi 2014 Committee spoke out against the next winter Olympic Games, to be held in their traditional territory in south west Russia. Hager and Barsik are members of the Circassian diaspora. Since 1870, nearly all Indigenous Circassian people have been driven out of their lands, and forced to resettle elsewhere. From Jordan to the USA, Circassians have resisted the 2014 Games since the beginning of the bid process. For Hager and Barsik, the 2014 Games, held on stolen Circassian lands in Sochi, represent the consolidation of Russian rule over their territories.
