Action against Olympics sponsors and greenwashing

Residents of London, Ontario protested of Olympic greenwashing, staging a die-in at RBC:

The local protest was part of a wider day of action, which was called by the Indigenous Environmental Network, with others who supported action against Olympics sponsors, Olympics greenwashing, the Albertan tar sands, and native oppression.  Local activists here in London, Ontario know of other Canadian protests in OttawaTorontoVancouverHalifaxKitchener-Waterloo, and Montreal. There even was an event in London, England, which was timed to coincide with the Canadian protests.
