Police vs. Critical Mass

This is the mass of scooters that was chasing Critical Mass participants round New York last night. The Critical Mass crowd cycled past me chanting “more bikes, less war” then suddenly there were shouts of “Scooters! Go back!” and these guys shot up in the mass of bikes on Bleeker Street. There was a minor road block of police cordening them off and I saw one girl get arrested. As someone said when walking past “This is Bloomberg’s New York”. Makes you wonder why the Critical Mass guys don’t have front runners with phones to navigate safely away from this unwarrented harassment of peaceful protest. America the free. Guess not.
