First Extermination: Turbo-Capitalism
Every year at the beginning of summer, for years now, Montreal has fallen prey to a strange fever. For a period of several days, the air labours under a dense and foul-smelling cloud, residents suffer from a kind of collective tinnitus, a persistent and irritating ringing which disturbs thought and sleep. Many neighbourhoods, especially downtown, are invaded by hordes of blank-faced zombies, stripped of their senses and moving mechanically under the hypnotic influence of a malevolent power.
This disturbing state of affairs is brought on by tens of thousands of parasites who swarm into our beautiful city, stifling its habitual joy of living and injecting it with a paralyzing venom.
Every year, in the month of June, Montreal falls prey to the macho and consumerist virus of the Grand Prix!
Creeping politicians and flashy de luxe dealers are pumping themselves up to suck the blood of this crowd, handed over on a giant checker-board.
Streets are blocked off so that we can be subjected to grosteque advertising and alienating shows.
The forces of repression outdo themselves to maintain the commercial peace.
This year, the Convergence of Anti-Capitalist Struggles (CLAC) is proposing an antidote:
ANTI-CAPITALIST CRITICAL MASS
Friday, June 7th at 5:30pm
Two meeting points:
Place Valois (Ontario/Valois in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve)
Parc Laurier (Laurier/Mentana in the Plateau)
Come on your bicycle, rollerblades, stakeboard, scooter …
and let's take back the streets together, because the city belongs to all who live here!
Let's invade the city and take a ride - for as long as we want!
We won't let car culture drive us off the road!
IT IS TIME TO COLLECTIVELY RE-APPROPRIATE OUR SPACE!
Fuck the Grand Prix! Down with car culture!
6 June to 13 June: call for autonomous action!!!!
