Ubers aggressive policies — and its outspoken CEO, Travis Kalanick — makes it an easy company to hate unless youre a fan of convenient, expensive taxi rides. In a new WordPress blog dedicated to the destruction of Uber, a writer identifying with the anarchist collective published details of an attack on Uber vehicles in Seattle this past weekend. The writer notes that ten vehicles were detained and fliers were distributed to the drivers and passengers. The post continues: Hundreds of people witnessed this act of defiance against one of the most disgusting tech companies in existence. The outrage against Uber centers around an accident last year in which a driver tragically killed a six-year-old girl in San Francisco. Some of these protesters identify with The Counterforce, and other fragmented supporters that agree with the group have sprouted in Seattle.
