Olympic Resistance Network Press Conference – recap + audio

native elder

For the record, i am not personally an Olympic resister, i am a documentarian & an enthusiast of stories, international relations and winter sports. I am disheartened and flummoxed by some of the practices of the IOC and VANOC but feel engaging in respectful dialouge is key to finding common ground.

I am also an advocate of media democracy and also enjoy helping people who have a heard time finding coverage in the mainstream media find outlet for their concerns.

On November 20, 2008, I recorded the Olympic Resistance Network press conference including separate clips for remarks by Chris Shaw and Joan Morelli, at the Anti-Poverty Committee office in the Vancouver’s downtown eastside.

[NOTE: reposting audio forthwith, will update for the record]
