This edition of Dissident Island Radio casts a critical eye over the 2012 Olympic games, which are set to open in East London in a week's time. Adam and Tim spoke to a number of people involved in campaigns surrounding the Olympics and discovered some of the hidden consequences of the games.

First up, an interview with Julian Cheyne, former resident of the Clays Lane estate in Newham, which was demolished in 2007 to make way for the Olympic athletes village. Next, a conversation with two activitsts, Caroline and Kev, who are part of the save Leyton Marsh Campaign, a grassroots campaign to prevent the destruction of a community open space to build a temporary basketball training facility. Following on, some historical background on the repressive tactics used at past Olympic games and injunctions and exclusion orders that are being used today from Brian Richardson, a barrister based in East London who is also the author of Tell it like it is: how our schools fail black children. Adam and Tim also speak to several people doing research into the corporations sponsoring the games. These include Richard Solly from the London Mining Network talking about the Greenwash Gold Campaign; Anna McMullan from the Play Fair campaign; and Tim Hunt talking about the great Olympic Tax Swindle.

The show features tracks from Red Snapper, Radikal Guru feat Cian Finn, Dub Trio and Kidkanevil. And to finish things off in the usual island way - a DJ set from Little Shit and Squeaky Grinder.
