    Following that link (to OurOlympics) we find:


    The Counter Olympics Network (CON) Mass Action Planning meeting, with representatives from Our Olympics, No UK Tar Sands, Coalition of Resistance, Occupy London, Save Leyton Marsh, Drop DOW Now, and others have announced a Day of Mass Action on Saturday 28th July 2012.

    Further details will follow, but we call on all groups impacted by the Olympics, the misdeeds of it’s sponsors and contractors, or the government which is selling Britain out from under us: clear your diary and join together with us on Saturday 28th July 2012 to make your voice heard. It’s going to be a day we never forget.”

    Have I developed fully-fledged paranoia or is the acronym ‘CON’ a little dubious?! Why are they so public? Is this the demo the government want us to join or is this ‘CON’ legit? I ask semi-seriously; there’s always a decoy and I have little knowledge of the current Olympics resistance. I’d like more though!

      Hi Amy,

      Kerry-anne here. Yes I had te same thought about the unfortunate acronym! I assure you (not that this would help with full fledged paranoia, but for what’s worth) we’re genuine. Genuine in that we are real people and our views are our own and meant with integrity. You should become an OurOlympian at our website if not already and you can come along to planning meetings/events etc and meet more like minded people. If not, we certainly hope to see you on July 28th. It’s going to be a celebration of the better angels of our nature!

      Thanks to all for their interest in the campaign and spreading the word.

      K @OurOlympics
