On Friday, January 6, 2012 the Montreal police killed Farshad Mohammadi – a homeless man and Kurdish political refugee – in the metro.

This killing is horrific, but not surprising. The police as an institution exist to maintain power and enforce a social peace necessary to keep capitalism in motion. To this end, they consistently suppress those who don’t, can’t, or choose not to fit into this system.

As one of many attempts to respond to this killing, a few of us put up hundreds of posters inside the metro trains with an anti-police analysis while trying to engage with bystanders about the reasons for the action. “Porcs-Flics-Assassins” and “Cops-Pigs-Murderers” were also painted onto the walls of the platform at Peel metro.
