On November 29th, the Seattle Fare Strike was successful in shutting down fare enforcement for Sound Transit and Metro. For a full roundup of #NoBodyPays actions, go here.
From the video:
“Everyone pays for the rich to get richer. We pay with our labor, working to fill their pockets. We pay with skyrocketing rent as they gentrify us out of our homes. We pay with the destruction of the environment, the erasure of our communities, the stress in our day-to-day lives. We pay for things that used to be free, like water. We pay taxes so they can hire more cops to terrorize us. Everyone pays, but only they benefit.
We could talk about the high cost of living—but who’s really living?
On November 29, nobody pays. This is a call for a strike addressing all the ways they are squeezing us, all the ways they are making it impossible to live.”
