In the above video, we see students and unemployed workers shutting down public transportation toll collection. It’s called the “I Won’t Pay” movement. It began last year in Greece and has spread to other locales on the continent, including Spain and Sweden.
Thousands of Greeks are now refusing to validate their public transit tickets following well-publicized protests by leftists and communists in response to ticket price hikes by the government.
Some believe this sort of civil disobedience is ineffective and merely theatrical, but it is a good way for people to make a point – they are opposed to the state acting as an enforcer for the IMF, the World Bank and the international bankers.
Maybe Texans outraged by the Trans Texas Corridor and proposed toll roads should think about following the lead of Greek leftists.
