Report from so-called Edmonton, Alberta about #NoBodyPays activity around transit.
During the week leading up to the Nov. 29th call, some anarchists plastered hundreds of stickers around bus stops, at transit stations, and on train cars. Stickers were handed out to antifascist punks at a show who enthusiastically placed them about the city.
State forces were mobilized thoroughly to oppose the call, with reports of groups of up to seven officers roaming transit that day. Stickers were consistently taken down by early morning after the night of them going up.
However, many people have begun talking about transit fare being unfair in the city. As well, on the Friday, students mobilized a climate rally at an LRT train station.
With many union negotiations coming up, resistance in so-called ‘Edmonton’ will not subside anytime soon.
