“Our memory of the Olympics? Repression”


What really happened to children in Rio during the Olympics? Watch Monica’s story.

The youth worker tells us of inhumane overcrowding in juvenile detention centres during the Games. In one crowded cell on the day of the Olympic opening ceremony, a fire broke out. Two boys died, with seven others being severely burned.

Monica’s evidence forms part of our briefing, Breaking Records: Child Rights Violations During The Rio 2016 Olympics, which exposes the devastating impact of the Games on thousands of children and young people in Rio. You can read the briefing here.
