Project I Pan-canadian Action I Attacks # 12-13-14-15


Attack # 12 - À Toronto

Toronto, February 3rd, 2006 ATSA invites you to its next action, to be held in Toronto on February 3, 2006, as part of the Free Fall and Art & Activism exhibits at the Theatre Centre and the YYZ Artist’s Outlet gallery.

Attack # 12 is a sprint operation based on Attack #10, which took place in Montreal in September 2005 and where nearly 350 “patrollers” recruited by ATSA issued some 10,000 statements of offence. These statements target oversize vehicles and the excessive fuel consumption asociated with them, excessive engine idling, remote engine starters and poorly maintained vehicles.

Individually numbered between 10,001 and 11,200 and in triplicate, these statements of offence will be:

  1. Handed out to all offending vehicles by our patroller citizens on Feb. 3rd between 5 and 7 p.m.
  2. Displayed at YYZ Artist's Outlet as an interactive exhibit between 7 and 9 p.m.
  3. Presented to a politician responsible for the sustainable development of the Toronto community.

In all, 1,200 statements of offence are available!

Starting February 3rd at the Theatre Centre (1087 Queen St. West.)

4 pm - Conference on Attacks # 8, # 9 and # 10.
5 pm - Distribution of the statements of offence and “patroller” itineraries!
7 pm - Meeting at YYZ Artist’s Outlet for the collective exhibit in the Gallery, followed by a party with the group The New Kings at 7:30 p.m.!

Prizes will be given to our best patrollers!
