Rally For Bike Justice

non-riding event

Friday, February 8, 2019


Hi everyone,

TODAY AT 4 PM - RALLY AT NYPD MIDTOWN NORTH PRECINCT (306 W 54th St between 8th & 9th Aves).

 

Last night's appalling events - a person on a bike being thrown to the ground by a police officer on 9th Avenue, with more working cyclists and people of color being rounded up on the side of the avenue - came after a predictable stream of events that escalated during a 48-hour period. Earlier this week, we were pained to learn of the tragic hit-and-run killingof Joseph Chaim while he was riding a bike through a mixing zone on 8th Avenue. Now we're seeing a police response to that tragedy that is illogical, unjust, and unacceptable. While we can't change the fact that Mr. Chaim lost his life, we can absolutely demand justice on New York City's streets. Share this video so that the world knows that treating New Yorkers this way is unacceptable, and join your fellow New Yorkers today to send that message loud and clear.

 

Together with the Biking Public Project and the Asian American Federation, we'll be rallying outside the NYPD Midtown North precinct house, on West 54th Street between 8th & 9th Avenues, at 4 PM to tell our elected officials that we demand change. We demand that the city #DeliverJustice for delivery workers and all who rely on bicycles - and who are threatened by the traffic violence that took the life of Joseph Chaim.

 

Will you be there? I will, and I hope to see you there and hear your voice as well. Feel free to contact me at (917) 480 1203 with any questions in advance or at the rally. And if you're heading there from downtown, please consider helping Chelsea to carry supplies from the TransAlt Office at 111 John St - text her ASAP at (917) 837 7621 if you can help.

 

Best,


Ryan
