More than a dozen photographers and cameramen have been briefly detained by authorities outside Olympic sites in recent weeks.
The two members of the Televisa Mexico crew and a translator say they were pushed into an unmarked car by three security officers as they tried to film. They claimed they were taken to a police gymnasium and beaten.
Author Brian Martin details reasons to oppose all Olympic Games, applicable to the games in Greece in August 2004 and in the years to come. These include the way the games promote nationalism, commercialism, racism, violence, celebrity, male dominance, government repression (especially relevant in Greece now), a society of the spectacle and other negatives so valued by the present order of civilization. Strategies for changes & concrete actions are discussed. A classic article first published in Freedom (August 1996) and doubly worth reading today.
