Shoot: Toxics Action against Dioxins at the IOC Headquarters in Lausanne Switzerland

GP09EL
Greenpeace activists protest in front of the headquarters of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in Lausanne. They want to draw attention to the enormous amounts of dioxins in Homebush Bay, next to the Olympic Park in Sydney. An action team in Australia safely stored the illegal toxic waste barrels of Union Carbide and calls for a clean up of the site. Greenpeace athletes hand over a case study in Lausanne, summarizing the disturbing results of samples taken by Greenpeace to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in Lausanne. At a stone's throw from the Olympic village, sixty times higher dioxin levels than after the dioxin accident in Seveso in 1976 were measured. The dioxin findings threaten the concept of "green" Games in Sydney.
