On the 5th of August, the day of the opening of the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, the “League against imperialist aggression”  called for a rally with the slogan “Down with the Olympic massacre!” in front of the brazilian honorary consulate in Hamburg, which is located in a cynical way in the so called “Columbus House” in the most high profiled business district of Hamburg. At the beginning of the rally a German translation of the leaflet by the “Revolutionary Front for the Defense of the Rights of the People – Brazil” was read out. Various speeches on different aspects of the Olympic Games were held. In the speeches attention was drawn also on to the situation of political prisoners in Brazil and other countries, like Chile and Palestine. A good number of revolutionary youth participated at the rally and distributed the leaflet. This rally marked the start of the activities in support of the campaign in Brazil against the Olympic Games in Rio and there will be further actions for sure.
