  1. It is a good video but slightly misguided.

    In the sense that it focuses on athletes competing in Sochi.

    These people are privileged.

    The fascist persecution of the gay folk in Russia is infinitely more terrible than the risk to athletes.

    Any athlete that attends these games who does not condemn these fascist laws is in fact a collaborator with fascism.

    Their ability to win a medal is quite irrelevant compared to the human rights of millions.

    1. Yes, Steve, it’s a good video because it has broad appeal and will make 100s of 1000s of people all over the world sit up and take notice, be emotionally moved, and then ask and consider what’s going on in Putin’s Russia.

      Well done, film-makers!

    2. Could you tell me how you define “fascism”, please?
      Thanks.

  2. one thing we can do in London is attend the peaceful protest (against Putin supporter Gergiev conducting the LSO) outside the Barbican this Thursday 7th Nov, 6-7pm, bring torches, sparklers etc (the plan is to shine light into the darkness of intolerance!)
