RNC Quick Update
Before I write up my personal experience of yesterday’s Bike Bloc, here are links to good information about the last couple of days.
For up to the minute news, visit NYC Indymedia. If you really want to be on the up and up, register your phone with Text Mob and join the “comms_dispatch” group to receive text messages used by protesters to determine routes and actions.
A fantastic piece about Friday’s critical mass was on Monday’s Democracy Now!. Includes bike mounted camera footage of the ride, the producer being arrested, and the police swinging batons at a crowd chanting for the release of a bicyclist. Democracy Now! is covering the actions and protests surrounding the Republican National Convention with video footage, photos and interviews.
