Economic Disobedience

January 26, 2011 § 1 Comment

This video from Russia Today is a corker. Economic disobedience is on the rise across America. As the Huffington Post explains:

With falling wages, cuts in benefits, and alarming public transportation fare hikes, New Yorkers are fighting back with their own brand of economic disobedience. The video below is about the People’s Transportation Program, an organization that is purchasing unlimited Metrocards and giving people free rides as a protest to the recent MTA fare increase ($104 for a monthly unlimited!).

Especially interesting is the mention of supermarket and fast-food chain managers giving their workers a little food to take home – a wrong they feel compelled to commit in order to deal with the bigger wrongs of tax-cuts for the rich and bank-bailouts.
