Cafe Politique at the CommonPlace Thursday 12 April

09-04-2007 16:57

Where do social centres, like the CommonPlace, fit into this?

Announcing: FARE STRIKE! San Francisco 2005: First-Hand Accounts

09-04-2007 07:27

Finally, a collection of first-hand accounts of the Fare Strike, in which thousands of San Franciscans openly and spontaneously united along class lines and rode mass transit for free. Popular anger over service cuts, fare hikes and threatened driver layoffs on Muni (SF Municipal Railway that runs a system of buses, streetcars and cable cars) set this action in motion. The working-class was being saddled with increasing costs for declining service in a system that was already very poor. Anger at this was transformed into the joy of refusal as many people rode mass transit like any other day, yet withheld their money from the fare box. The alienated space of public transportation was briefly transformed into an arena of solidarity and radical possibilities.
