Human Rights Watch and Brent Stirton report from Sochi, Russia, where the local population has been especially affected by massive efforts to prepare for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games. As one resident, evicted from his home, recalls:
‘My home was everything, I spent my whole life on my house. I have a big family. A daughter, a son, grandchildren, a wife. We all lived together in the house. We built the house in 1996, and in 2012 the Olympics came and they demolished my home.’
