join us for the ride of your lives!
It's over right? the well is capped (almost), and we can just do back to thinking nothing ever happened, right?
The reality is the oil and the nightmare of coastal land loss is still among us, although more people across the nation and the world have awoken to our nightmare. Even in the city, we erect levees around our homes, levees that we think will keep the water out because they keep us from seeing it. The marshes that protect us have been threatened
ever more by this giant slick, these marshes that will continue to protect and feed us so long as they exist.
The truth is that we should have marshes right in our backyards--and in some places, we still do. Join us as we ride to New Orleans East, over hell and high water, to the closest marsh to town, on the south shore of Lake Pontchartrain.
20 miles, 2.5 hours. There will be some bridges, so come get high with us (And bring your bathing suit).
To make this ride more excellent, we need some additional help:
flyering --If you are willing to pass out flyers, please email me your
name and neighborhood, and I will email you the loop strips to print
support --we also need a support car this time, so email me if you are
photography / video --if you are willing and able to shoot cyclists,
email me and let's talk about where you can set up.
Don't forget: there's another demonstration 31st July in Jackson Square, 2pm
Let's keep the pressure up, let's meet each other and work on our long -term oil problems.
New Orleans Worldwide BP Protest Day - July 31, 2010 2pm
see you friday!
