Extinction Rebellion vs Black Friday

Extinction Rebellion were out early on Friday at the Best Buy on Ste-Catherine, protesting the orgy of consumerism that traditionally takes place on the day after American Thanksgiving.

Note the angry verb “frappe” used by TVA, and similarly in the CTV headline Protesters crash Black Friday sales. Yet there’s no evidence protesters did anything but carry picket signs.

Update: some glued their hands to the store windows and some blocked Ste-Catherine Street for a time. But zero violence took place, so the harsh verbs are still misleading.
