Critical Mass to Protest Polluted Cities and Polluted Political System
05 Jul 2004
Join us as we protest polluted, congested roads and a polluted, congested political system; and celebrate an alternative, clean, efficient and, most importantly, fun form of transportation and social interaction. The ride will start at 8:00 am at Copley Square on Thursday, July 29th.
Critical Mass On July 29th
This summer when the Democratic delegates invade Boston for the DNC, they will be treated to cab vouchers and closed roads so they can get from one corporate-sponsored party to another as quickly and cheaply as possible. Unfortunately for the rest of us, we'll be responsible for our own transportation, just as we are every day.
And every day, we're faced with a decision. Should we get in a car and pollute our city's air while sitting in traffic jams, bored out of our minds and isolated from everyone else on the road? Or should we hop on our bikes and speed down the road, getting exercise, having a good time, and not adding to the waste and grime in the air we breath?
One person on a bike is a single person making a good choice. But hundreds of people on bikes riding together, reclaiming urban space from traffic and pollution, are a political statement. For these reasons (as if you need a reason to bike), this is a call for a Critical Mass during the DNC.
Join us as we protest polluted, congested roads and a polluted, congested political system; and celebrate an alternative, clean, efficient and, most importantly, fun form of transportation and social interaction. The ride will start at 8:00 am at Copley Square on Thursday, July 29th.

Let's take back the streets, because the revolution will not be motorized!
