Counter Olympics Torch Relay – Second Leg – A Beautiful Day!

This historic and iconic Counter Olympics Torch Relay completed its milestone second leg, this time around Hackney before ending at Leyton Marsh. The torch, sent by Vancouver Counter Olympics protesters, will shortly depart with the NoSochi2014 team to continue its epic journey around the world representing hope for all those for whom the Olympics has become a symbol of repression, eviction, greed and arrogance.

The torch started from the cafe in Clissold Park
