Officials of the City of Boston (MA) and other elites have pushed, and the International Olympics Committee (IOC) is said to be accepting and planning for, staging the 2024 Olympics in Greater Boston. Such a staging would cost the public huge sums of money and would turn the area upside down in many ways. There are no benefits, other than for the elite. This is not the people's will!

On 6-2-2015, No Boston Olympics presented two very special speakers who addressed a large crowd in a Jamaica Plain church on the problems with this threatened nightmare incursion and what to do to stop it.

WZBC's Truth and Justice Radio producer Stan Robinson was there to record, and so was longtime MIT Radio with a View producer David Goodman. We exchanged our results; this posting is intended to represent the best of them, along with Stan's introductions, used on Truth and Justice Radio.

Kade Crockford of the Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts spoke about the effects of the so-called “security” programs that come with mega-events like the 2024 Olympics. “Security” is actually a code word for policing, surveillance, and reduction or elimination of citizens’ rights. These programs are extraordinarily expensive, disruptive, slanted against minorities, and controlled by unaccountable players.

Dave Zirin, author of 8 books and sports editor of The Nation magazine, spoke on Corruption at FIFA, worse at IOC, and why Boston's people must proudly refuse hosting Olympics 2024. He gave three special reasons why NO PLACE should allow hosting of the Olympics: debt, displacement, and militarization.

Finally, Diane Wilkerson, a former state legislator in the audience, spoke on behalf of the nonwhite and lower-income community, who have never been consulted or asked for consent.

Both speakers used some naughty words. We respect those words. But we replaced them to avoid the most obvious type of FCC troubles.
Thanks to our colleague Dave Goodman of MIT's "Radio With A View" for major parts of what is posted here.
