the people of portland know all about police and how they work, when it comes to critical mass, they, (the police), as usual, work against the people
this last friday we witnessed a huge show of force again, with tickets and an arrest
at one point after we were all forced on the sidewalk a few people decided to ride, and within 30 feet there was 4 motercycle cops a cop-car and a few bicycle cops all just to hand out an improper lighting ticket!
this october people will ride mass once again and without a doubt the police will be there to selectivly enforce minor trafic laws
this is a callout to all who would like to show support by showing up to cheer us on as we ride from the gathering spot
we need legal observers, media, people to ride, and leading up to the ride a teli/letter/fax campain to let the city know we will not tollerate this anymore
including possible new mayor potter/francisconi
remember to get your costumes ready both person and bike, for a very exciting and spooky critical mass
