Some international tax resistance news to wind up the old year:
- Fares in the government-run Mexico City metro system went up by 66% recently, and that’s making commuters hopping mad. They’ve formed a movement hashtagged #PosMeSalto (roughly, “Well then, I’ll jump”) and are encouraging passengers to leap the turnstiles and board without paying. Here are some photos of a modern dance troupe doing turnstile-vaults in the Coyoacan station to promote the protest.
- The Bonnets Rouges are still at it. three more traffic radar installations went up in flames a few nights back, in a reemergence of the tactic that has resulted in the destruction of more than 210 such installations since the beginning of the movement.
