Not in the News: The Sochi Project – Building the winter Capital

 

Making room for the Olympic Games, displacing the locals
The Sochi we will not see.

“The largest structures are being built on groundwater areas between two big mountain rivers, ski slopes are carving up UNESCO World Heritage sites and thousands of people are being forced to abandon house, hearth and land in exchange for an uncertain future. This is a private project for Putin and a few oligarchs. We’ve complained to the IOC, but never receive any response.” – The Sochi Project – Building the winter Capital.
