29.11.2005

There is now an eviction notice hotline that will notify you if there is an eviction if you get in touch, and buses ready to go to Dalkeith as soon as the eviction happens!

The eviction notice still stands, but protesters are still determined to brave the cold to save the trees of Dalkeith Park from being cut. It is crucial that when the police arrive to evict the tree-sit (likely early in the morning) that people be there to provide support, witness any possible brutality by the police, and take note of any possible neglect of environmental regulations by tree-cutters. Since the eviction can happen anytime, it would be useful if you could e-mail your phone number and/or e-mail address to:

Critical Massive, London report

London Critical Mass by Big Ben

30.10.2005
The police tried to ban Critical Mass

We showed them who runs London
I am very proud of London right now.

The last Friday of every month fields Critical Mass, London’s weekly bike protest street party. We meet under Waterloo Bridge at 6pm, & ride at 7. At the last mass, end of September, after a week of protests against DSEI, the worlds biggest arms fair, held in the Docklands Excel centre, the police handed out letters explaining that because Critical Mass was an unlicensced protest, with no organiser & no official route, cyclists at the next Critical Mass would be facing arrest.
