DICTATORS

OLYMPICS
SEND THEM AWAY

Glamorous photos of victorious athletes drown out the suffering of millions of people living under harsh dictatorships. For every athlete who stands on a podium, there is a human rights activist languishing in prison for the “crime” of advocating for democratic reform. For every ruthless dictator who struts around the Opening Ceremonies at the Olympic Games, there are millions of people in their home countries suffering for something as simple as expressing their political beliefs or practicing their religion.
DICTATORS use the
olympics to
legitimize their
brutal regimes.
we're pressuring
the olympics to
leave dictators'
box seats empty
at the opening
Ceremonies.
help us spread
the word by
choosing where
to send them
instead.
