Critical Mass Rally: We Still Speak!
OnNYTurf posted this video with a press release from alternative transportation advocates TimesUp! about a rally being held Friday night called "We Still Speak." The rally is planned for 7pm at Union Square, the usual starting time and place for Critical Mass. The protest will feature video evidence of New York Police Department harassment of cyclists involved in the March 2007 Critical Mass ride. The ride has been a target of the NYPD since the RNC or so, despite several legal setbacks for the police department.
Note: this writer was issued a ticket in November 2007 while participating in a Critical Mass ride.
