this is real

since i've been thinking so much about public transit lately, i've been thinking a lot about the politics of transit and ways to make change. the way a lot of people do it in large cities is by forming transit rider unions. seemingly the two most powerful ones are in NYC and LA. Check out this link to A FUCKING HUNGER STRIKE that the LA transit riders union did last year:

supposedly seattle already has a transit riders union ( but it seems that their website hasn't been updated in months. i think i may attempt to get in contact with them and see if they are still active at all.

i'm probably going to be talking about this a lot now.
