Housing activists and their supporters reclaimed Athletes Village in a carefully planned action on Saturday afternoon. The False Promises at False Creek rally disrupted the open house event, and made the demands of poor and homeless people in Vancouver impossible for investors to ignore.

Excellent reporting!

Thanks again to the VMC for this excellent coverage of an extremely important event in Vancouver and the larger anti-poverty and anti-globalization struggle worldwide. No other media outlet has covered the story in this detail or with this sort of care for the essential issues.

The circus continues...

Thanks VMC for keepin your awesome Olympic coverage goin!

It appears that while the party may be over, the circus never ends for those who want to continue living in Vancouver.

Thanks for keepin me up to date.
