SHUT DOWN CITY M28!!!
by Bikes Not Bombs!
Thursday Mar 27th, 2003 3:33 PM
A general call to all affinity groups, whether on foot, bicycle, automobile or otherwise in the streets, to shut down the City in protest of the war!
Thousands of bicyclist will protest against the oil war during Critical Mass this Friday. Marchers are invited to assemble at Justin Herman plaza and march along with groups of bikes, or diverge on foot. Motorists are invited to bring traffic to a crawl throughout the city.

The deadly system of oil dependence is destroying our world, from the rain forest to the people of Baghdad to the polar icecaps to our own cities. Now it is killing innocent people abroad in terrible swift violence. So-called "smart bombs" can't even stay in the same country, let alone "surgically target." The war is in violation of the wishes of the world majority and violates international and United States law.

NO BUSINESS AS USUAL!

DO NOT ALLOW THE WAR MACHINE TO FUNCTION AT HOME OR ABROAD!

JOIN IN AFFINITY GROUPS TO SHUT DOWN THE CITY DURING THE EVENING COMMUTE!

This is the only means we have to affect change and to peacefully and nonviolently communicate how desperately upset the public is that this murderous land grab for oil is being carried out in our name. The children of the Middle East are children just like ours.

NO BLOOD FOR OIL!

Why during Critical Mass, with Bikes Not Bombs?

Bicycles reduce oil dependence. The average SUV weighs more than 100-200 peoples' bicycles! Some weigh more than 500 peoples' bicycles! This type of greed is fueling death across the globe. Bicycles create life, health, happiness, community. SUV's are creating death everywhere.

Protest the oil war for every reason:

To stop the killing
To stop terrorism
To restore a democratic system in the world and in the U.S.A. where the peoples' voice rules, not killer corporations
To create a sustainable future, not one doomed by oil dependence

Add your own!
