We get a fair amount of inquiries on WHO we are at No Games Chicago. You have to understand that our volunteers are sometimes reluctant to publicly identify themselves for fear of retribution. When three of us went to Switzerland on June 15 we were asked a number of times “Who is paying you?” It seemed strange to the European press that American citizens could just pick up and go to Switzerland to challenge their own city’s Mayor and communicate directly with the IOC.
This 25-minute interview with three No Games organizers, including two members of the Swiss delegation, will give you a sense of who we are and why we are fighting. The interview was conducted by Patrick McDonough, editor of ChicagoClout.com.
