Bike Swarm OCCUPYLA 11/28

BIKE SWARM OCCUPYLA

11.27.11



Villaraigosa has recently announced that cops are going to take down Occupy LA at midnight on Monday the 28th.

We will bike swarm around city hall in solidarity to protect the camp from getting torn down and occupiers arrested if we keep riding around in large numbers, peacefully.
We can legally ride around city hall in circles because of the one way streets. Spread the word and let's do this.

The eviction will take place midnight. However, I am urging all ridazz to meet early and ride early so that it can grow to critical mass stage by the time it reaches midnight.

We will not be doing anything illegal, we are just riding our bikes.

The atmosphere of the bicycle swarm intended to be festive and non-threatening. Wear costumes, decorate your bikes and bring bike sound systems.


Meet At 9pm at Olvera Street Plaza Gazebo - ON SUNDAY THE 27th!

Ride at 9:30

Be prepared to ride continuously until 5am in the morning.



Some background on how this was a success for Occupy Portland earlier this month:

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I will ask that any responses to this remain nonpolitical, so it can stay where it is, rather than being moved to P&R. I know it's a political topic, but for the main forums, we're just a bunch of bicyclists, so we can discuss the cycling aspects.

Also, good luck and have fun on your ride, all of you!
