A short film by activists from Save Leyton Marsh with the last 400 metres and the speeches, from last month’s anti-Olympic relay, featuring lots of nice footage of the torch (Julian Cheyne explains its history)

The picture shows our group in the last couple of hundred metres of last Friday’s Counter Olympics Network relay.
Our route took us from Clissold Park through Hackney Central to Leyton Marsh, where we ate beside the fenced-off concrete building which is the Olympic basketball practice court.
We ran, deliberately, as a group; because exercise can be fun and challenging when you are running against your own body. There doesn’t need to be a rival.
