New York Bikes Again ... Three Weeks Early

NYC IMC | Fighting back against the increasing NYPD harassment of Critical Mass, some city bikers have decided to ride again, this Friday, three weeks ahead of schedule.

One Critical Mass rider writes: "How about it? Weekly CM rides until the NYPD backs down. Any ideas for calling spontaneous rides once a week would be helpful. Maybe announce the date online and set up a message hotline or use to give the exact location at the last moment. How about trying to get more families involved by doing a saturday or sunday afternoon CM?" [Read More]

Another reader writes: "Still We Ride! Friday, 7PM, Washington Sq. Arch." [Read More]

Canada bussed 5,000 overnight to protest Bush- we can do that!

ben frank | This Saturday there will be a huge rally to Demain a Recount and investigation into the Ohio voting problems. This is not about bush vs kerry, this is about American citizens being given equal access to vote. If we don’t demand Blackwell remove himself from the process and allow a full recount to proceed, then American democracy will be officially dead. You were given a democracy- are you going to let them just take it like this? Do you really think we’ll have a better shot in 2008? Wake up and expose this fraud they call ’the president’ ! more...  4 Comments

Casa Del Sol Evicted, Hours Later, Fire Consumes Second Floor

NYC IMC | This morning, residents the Bronx Community Center Casa Del Sol were evicted without warning. There are unconfirmed reports of two arrests. One newswire poster writes: "Most residents of the building were given 5-10 minutes to get some of their things which they could carry and get out. After regrouping outside on the sidewalk we left the area of the building around 2pm. More than a dozen police, ACORN (landlord) representatives were left directing movers who were confiscating what was left behind and contractor who were sercuring the building. One member of Cherry Tree had turned of the power before leaving."

Another opinion: Another poster to the newswire writes that Casa Del Sol "is not a community center and not a healthy environment by any measure. Let's not pretend otherwise. There used to be tons of families, locals from the Bronx" and they were slowly driven out.

Several hours later, a four-alarm fire engulfed most of the second floor of Casa Del Sol. The cause of the fire is currently unknown, although one reader from the Bronx writes that "the Salvation Army disaster response unit is giving out coffee to the firefighters, the Red Cross is there, DEP trucks are there, and the police are guarding the subway station closest to the 40th precinct."
