Report on The Greatest Show On Earth!
In the summer of 2012 the eyes of the world will be on London as the best gather from around the globe. The Olympics, Para Olympics and Cultural Olympiad have set the stage for a spectacular showcase. There are already missiles on peoples' roofs, and an aircraft carrier in the Thames. Around 50,000 security personnel will be on duty in the Olympic boroughs, including 13,500 from the British army, more than in Afghanistan. With ASBOs for "undesirable" residents, harassment of journalists by private security, and new powers against civil liberties afforded by the London Olympics Act 2006, you don't want to miss your chance to say "I was part of the greatest show on earth".
As the official citizen reporters of London 2012, the London Street Reporters Network gives you the opportunity to hone your skills and meet the reporting challenges. Taking place in venues across London, the official protest of the games is starting, and you can sign up to cover it. You can make a start by creating an account with London Street Reporters.
