Critical Mass London March 2017

A sunny day brought out a large crowd, 500 or more. We started by keeping south of the river along York Road westbound to Westminster Bridge. There were lots of police around dealing with their own nonsense. We didn’t stop in Westminster square, or circle it, but head straight up east along Whitehall. Two groups of protestors were drowned out by the sound system. The police seemed relieved. EDL offshoot against Antifa, kettled apart, shouting scum at each other in tired repetition.

Critical Mass London December 2016

Report from hickster

It was foggy. It had been foggy all day. Or misty maybe. Especially next to the Thames. And we all seemed a bit foggy too. The ride didn’t start until 19:22. Even then, there wasn’t much attitude to get moving. The December ride can be bitterly cold which motivates us to move. Not this time.

Sign up at reclaimthepower.org.uk for updates of precise time and location to meet.

We will protest the governments plans for major airport expansion at City and Heathrow, demanding that frequent flyers be taxed instead of rewarded, to radically reduce the aviation industry’s emissions to levels compatible with a sustainable future.

Critical Mass London 27 August 2016

Sunny and dry, a 1000 or more attended.

Started on schedule. A conventional loop around the roundabout. North, through the tunnel, up kingsway. Keeping together, outraging the walkers wishing to cross on green, heading north, Russell Square, etc, turning left onto Euston road. Proceeding to Marylebone Road, second tunnel – keeping on Marylebone to turn off towards Edgware Road, but cutting over to Sussex Gardens, then pissing through the back streets to emerge on Bayswater Road to proceed to Kensington Palace Gardens.
