Hilary Powell and Isaac Marrero-Guillamon, The Art of Dissent: Adventures in London’s Olympic state

Marshgate Press; 302pp; £14.99

ImageA rich record of creative intervening, interfering and interpreting the physical and psychic destruction of East London by the Olympic monster. The contributions to this book speak in a language verbal and visual that poignantly describes the true, felt experience of state-sport-sponsored obliteration of communities and personal worlds.

The book is also an important reminder of 1000 people evicted from homes and businesses in 2005 to make way for bigger business.

A powerful and beautiful book.
