UK - 2012 Olympic Games - Community Protest

Placards protesting against a disputed temporary construction for the 2012 Olympic Games are fixed to the protective fence as a group of local residents stage a protest against the ODA (Olympic Development Authority). This is in Leyton Marshes where the ODA have started the construction of a temporary basketball training court on an area of natural parkland despite widespread opposition to the plan. The ODA won the right to build this temporary training hall despite a petition signed by more than 1,250 local people. The ODA have stated that the games created special circumstances to make this construction necessary and promised that the green space would be returned to its natural condition after the 2012 Olympic Games, though this is disputed by the Don't Be Harsh, Save the Marsh campaign Group who claim that it is a land grab by the Olympic authorities.
