October Critical Mass

1151 London cyclists showed up to this month critical mass (cz counted)
the police threatened to ban the event, but they didn't; because so many people showed up? because they felt nice that warm October evening? who knows.
Critical mass pics always fail to capture the sense of empowerment and solidarity which accompanies this mass aimless drifting through central London. The buz is druglike.

Highlight was twenty minutes cycle-jamming Parliament square, heart of the paranoid age 'demonstrations exclusion zone'. You won't find any mention on the Guardian or the BBC; but on indymedia you can find reports, videos and a scary green monster.
