As comrades may know, Tokyo won the Olympics nomination over Istanbul and Madrid yesterday. Here's an accurate summary of the choice the Olympics Committee had to make, from Guardian's webpage: "It's a tough one, isn't it? The city with civil unrest and police brutality or the city near the radioactive spill? At least the bankrupt city is out, for their own good, they have more important things to worry about I suppose."

Is it not telling that the bourgeoisie sees a more significant threat in civil unrest and the economic crisis than a radioactive spill?

In any case, I can't resist sharing the Accurate Olympics Video of Istanbul: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxyk9JPS6mI

Interesting

Thanks Leo. A radioactive spill and a 'terrorist' nerve gas attack - both preferable to civil unrest!?

The video was interesting: very effective contrasting the state's image with the reality of repression. Hardly 'political' or, rather, analytical but effective nonetheless. Something to learn from there?
