Last night we left graffiti reading FREE CED(A)R on Montreal Street in Kingston.
It felt appropriate to make use of the steel shutters of the Elm Cafe to share our message. The shutters were installed last year following repeated unclaimed vandalism against the gentrifying business, provoking outrage among local yuppies as well as certain ‘progressives’ who rush to defend the sanctity of small business.
We hope this small act encourages curious local residents to reflect on the situation, and brings a smile to the faces of anarchists in Hamilton currently dealing with repression.
