It couldn't be spelled out more clearly. 

"VENTRA SUCKS" reads a string of what appears to be more than 300 magnetic stripe CTA cards in a photo shared on Facebook late last night. It appears to be taped up with blue painters' tape at the Logan Square Blue Line stop. It's unclear if the makeshift protest is still hanging around, but it likely took quite a bit of effort -- and tape -- to express such emotion.

"Saw this as I was getting on my bike at the Logan Station to ride home tonight," writes Deborah McCoy on Facebook. "Cracked me up. Recycled fare cards."

Props to the protestor for recycling?
