Free Evgeny Vitishko!
'His 'crime'? Revealing illegal building in a national forest and speaking openly about the environmental impact of Sochi Olympic Games' construction.'

Re-posted in the Group "Bloody Olympics".
Invitation to all, to join the group!

People have a hard time realizing the NEGATIVE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT of Big Sports -
whether it's the Olympics, FIFA {World Cup Soccer}, or building those huge Sports Stadiums.
Pristine Nature is devastated {as in Sochi};
Vital Animal Habitat is destroyed {and Bird Territory};
Housing {for the Poor, never for the Rich!} is DEMOLISHED to make way for Tourist traps;
often huge, unnecessary buildings are erected, which after the Games are over, stand useless and unused;
"Stray" animals are rounded up and often killed {again, as in Sochi} to make things "nice" for the expected Tourists;
not to mention Homeless People somehow rounded up, maybe jailed, just to keep them out-of-sight;
and, for all this, TAXPAYERS PAY and get NOTHING from it. Cities are often BANKRUPTED. Only the already-Wealthy get even Wealthier, it is structured that way!

It is time to blow the Whistle on ALL out-of-control Big Sports and their devastating impact, on Human and on Animal lives!
Vitishko is a true Hero and Martyr for the Environment...
