THE CITY DIDN'T LEARN ITS LESSON FROM THE BUSH PROTEST. THE BRUTAL CRACKDOWN ON CRITICAL MASS IS A NOTHER REASON TO CALL AND WRITE TO COMPLAIN. HERE'S THE PHONE NUMBERS AND EMAIL ADDRESSES FOR THE MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL REPOSTED FROM ANOTHER ARTICLE.

TO COMPLAIN:

I also encourage you to contact the current chief of police, the mayor, and city council and their staffs to make a formal complaint. If you tie up their staffs' time you will get something done. Here are some addresses taken directly off the city website at:
