Masked protesters confront Unicity Taxi over complaints about drivers

 


Some indigenous activists in Winnipeg say the time for peaceful protest is over when it comes to standing up to the city's taxicab companies.

On Friday, four members of the Urban Warrior Alliance entered the Unicity Taxi office on Hargrave Street in camouflage pants, jackets, bandanas and masks.

"When we showed up that way, I think we threw a scare into them, which is why we wear our masks and our camo sometimes," said Calvin Clarke, a member of Urban Warrior Alliance. The small community activist group participates in blockades, vigils and marches for missing and murdered indigenous women.
