     ...sign here     Montreal, Canada 2008

We offer free one-hour carriage rides to tourists in Montreal in exchange for taking one of our protest signs with them on the tour.

These signs are inspired by the local protests against the city government which assigned the redevelopment plans for a whole district to one single investor company.
Furtheron they refer to the general critique on the monopolisation of urban space and the decline of democratic influence upon these areas.

Thereby the role of the tourists is extended from consumers to protestors.
