      Over the past few months hundreds of cyclists have
      been arrested in New York because of power a struggle
      between one of the richest men in the world, the mayor
      of New York, and a bunch of kids on bikes. The Mayor
      wants the kids to apply for a permit to ride in a
      group of undetermined numbers. One policeman was
      quoted as saying that two were a group.

      In Novembers Critical Mass the police department
      employed two helicopters, 100 scooters, 50 police
      cyclists,a dozen vans, and one flat-bed truck. The
      police coordined off areas adjacent to the meeting
      area, Union Square with orange netting. The cyclists
      scattered however a few were arrested within one
      block. One group of 4 was chased down and trapped in
      another area with orange netting and charged with
      riding without a parade permit. A total of 17 cyclists
      were arrested that night. The police established a
      presence outside of the Times-up Advocacy group, while
      those inside danced.

      In response, New York Critical Mass is now weekly.
      Last nights ride was a great success and demonstrated
      the resolve and love of the kids from for their bikes.

      STILL WE RIDE
