Critical Mass and Reverend Billy
This Friday is the NYC critical Mass and the Reverend is back with a vengeance.
CRITICAL MASS: MANHATTAN & FIRST AMENDMENT FESTIVAL
Friday, July 27
Festival, 6:30 p.m.
Critical Mass, 7 p.m.
Union Square Park North
The people of New York have to protect and honor the First Amendment. This city already has laws against dancing, now we are facing noise ordinances, new regulations regarding film and photography and the demon parade and assembly laws that make constitutionally protected dissent almost impossible. All of these laws give the NYPD tremendous latitude for discretionary enforcement.
Come to the North Side of Union Square at 6:30 with or without a bicycle. The Stop Shopping Choir will be there to sing and Reverend Billy has been working on a hot sermon since the NYPD took him to the Tombs on June 29th.
Critical Mass is a monthly celebration of bicycles and other nonpolluting means of transportation, exercising our right to the road. Critical Mass is a movement, not an organization; no two riders participate for exactly the same reason. New York City's first Critical Mass was in 1993.
We would love to see the tall bike out there so this is a call out to Black Label and Chunk 666. Come one come all to Union Square and stand up for your rights.
