Re: [carfree_cities] Strike Shuts Down Most of Londons Subway
- Is this intended as an argument in favor of the urban automobile, as a counterweight to the power of organized labor?
Doesn't work for me. Even if one accepts that such a counterweight is desirable, cars in cities are much more destructive, dangerous and expensive than an occasional strike.

What would happen here, in a "carfree" London?
"LONDON, Sept. 3 London's subway network virtually shut down at the
height of the rush hour this evening when 2,300 maintenance workers
walked off their jobs in what they said would be a three-day strike
over pensions and security."
