  1. Dallas News: Games organizers left down-and-out Eastside behind

    About 100 protestors set up a tent city in an abandoned parking lot Monday.

    They hung signs and banners on the chain-link fence surrounding the lot that read “Olympic Tent Village,” “Homes Not Games” and “Resist The 2010 Corporate Circus.”

    They’re angry over broken promises from the provincial government and VANOC.

    For example, 100 units of housing in the Olympic Village were supposed to be used for low-income housing once the Olympics end. The city is no longer guaranteeing it will happen.

  2. I am an American videojournalist, and I recently completed the video I made about the Tent Village during my trip to the Olympics. Please check out the link below, and share widely – the more people that see this, the better!

    Keep up the fight,
