Tech Commute Shut Down at MacArthur BART! - by Invisible Committee
In the the middle of April, 2015, a post went up on indybay.org for an early morning action to block the tech buses at the MacArthur BART station. The date of action was set for May 1st, or International Workers Day. This holiday commemorates the execution of several Chicago anarchists in 1886. These men fought for the eight-hour day, a meager goal that would allow workers to have a little time for themselves. For their efforts, the state sentenced these anarchists to death.

May Day #ShutItDown Communique and Banner Drop Photos! - by Wildcat

We think it is the most effective tool for working class people to achieve their demands for a living wage, against police violence, and against austerity and gentrification. We hope to shut down the city this May D...
