Dear fellow and former Occupiers of the T:
On August 3, at the weekly Fare Free Friday action, about 15 members of Boston Fare Strike Coalition passed out around 800 Fare Strike leaflets to morning commuters. We had dozens of good conversations, made a bunch of well-received speeches, singed up a group of new activist-enthusiastics, and did a bit of station liberatin’ to boot. 🙂
We also learned some valuable lessons that can help us to improve our work in the future.
We’ll be summing up these lessons and moving forward at our next weekly meeting, Thursday August 9, at 6pm, just on the grass nearby Park Street Station. (If it rains, we’ll be in the CityPlace Food Court.) I hope to see some of you there. There is certainly all sorts of room for collaboration and cross-pollination between the experience-base and the skill sets of Occupy MBTA and of BFSC.
BFSC has just put up a new wesbite too: https://bostonfarestrike.wordpress.com/
If you would like to be added to the email list for Boston Fare Strike please reply to this message, indicating as such.
Sincerely and in the struggle to Free the T,
