Ben will be travelling with ACAB and a documentary / workshop about the Lucasville Uprising by his friend D Jones called The Shadow of Lucasville.

Critical mass is critically awesome. Cars take up all the roads most of the time. Roads take up way too much of the earth. Bike parades are the best because friends and exercise and sunshine and creating a presence to disrupt the everyday fossil fuel drudgery. March Against Monsanto was also disruptive. You are damn right. If you don’t think that this world needs to be disrupted A LOT then you might need to open your eyes, check your privilege, and reflect on things. Disrupt things. Cause disturbances. The status quo is almost entirely fucked up. So if you think critical mass is disruptive, and marches are disruptive – then let us tell you 2 things- this shit is better than sitting around watching TV, and you are DAMN RIGHT ITS DISRUPTIVE. We hope more and more people step up and step out and start making disruptive actions to break up this capitalist/racist/patriarchical/whitesupremacist/classist/homophobic/speciesist/environment destroying hot mess yall call civilization.
Some local media coverage:
Hope to see you out on June 28th at 5pm in Monroe Park!
