JOIN THE POLITICAL MARDI GRAS… to celebrate unity in diversity. This Sunday 1 May, 2pm at Martin Place, Sydney.

25% of Australians do not vote for a major party, yet if the new senate election voting system is upheld in court then that’s all you get as your voting option.

The left and right minor political parties have united to protect your democratic right to vote for a minor party – of any persuasion. To find out more visit 3mv.net.au – an alliance representing 3 million voices who vote for the minor parties at federal elections.

On 2 May, the recent electoral voting changes are being challenged in the High Court of Australia, as unconstitutional.

This Sunday 1 May a rally is being held in Sydney, Martin Place at 2pm in support of this High Court Challenge. It is the “Hands off Our Senate Rally” and I urge you to join me, and supporters of the 20+ minor parties who will become extinct in future elections, to object to this undemocratic, un-representative, unconstitutional change to our vote for representatives of the Senate. Your attendance at the rally will support the High Court Challenge.

HAVE A VOICE IN YOUR DEMOCRATIC FUTURE AND REMEMBER DIVERSITY BRINGS STRENGTH TO A SPECIES, AN ORGANISATION… AND OUR PARLIAMENT AND NATION.

Cancel your golf or bike ride or long lunch – meet at Martin Place for a POLITICAL MARDI GRAS… celebrate unity in diversity.

UK: Time spent frail in old age 'doubles' - is this in part due to physical activity being engineered out of our lives? Keep riding; it's an investment!

Cars, bicycles and the fatal myth of equal reciprocity:

“If we think of the road in this way, it seems reasonable that all cyclists have to do to “earn the respect” of drivers is to conspicuously obey the road rules and not complain too much when “equal” penalties are applied. Many cyclists feel this way. For me, however, they are suffering the lycra equivalent of Stockholm syndrome.”

The Netherlands: in this video, an 800 year old canal, which was replaced by a main road, has been restored to a canal again. It shows how high efficiency modes like cycling will enable high quality green space.

Seeing footage of cars choking Utrecht is amazing given the recent opening of a huge bike parking garage.

Who will be more "future proof"? Cities ripping out the roads, or those who put more in?
