Operation: Over, a nonviolent direct action campaign against militarism in Boston is hosting a benefit screening of the movie Still We Ride. It's an awesome movie, please come and support our work! 100% of donations will go towards funding direct actions.

On Friday August 27, 2004 just days before the start of the Republican National Convention, a massive police operation was underway. By the end of the night 264 people were arrested. It marked one of the largest mass arrests in New York City's history - and the arrested had done nothing illegal.

For many New Yorkers, August was the first time they heard of what has become a monthly ritual for New York City's bike community; a free-forming ride called Critical Mass. Still We Ride is a documentary that captures the joyous atmosphere of this August ride before the arrests began and the chaos that followed. It recounts how this ride first started in San Francisco over 10 years ago and chronicles the police crackdown and resulting court battles in New York over the last twelve months. The movie takes on issues of civil liberties, surveillance, the power of mainstream media, and the benefits of alternative means of transportation.

I have the video. Awesome film, and everyone should go check it out! The CM crackdown after the RNC is a shame, and hopefully they can ride free again one day.
