Protest at Sydney CBD
What happened? On Sunday the 24th January over 100 cyclists, including ACP Executive Committee members, congregated in Hyde Park to ride in protest of the proposed new legislation affecting NSW cyclists.
Participants of the protest decided to take action. Over 100 “ID Cards” will be sent to various ministers in NSW parliament with communication that argues that these laws are unjustified, unfair and unacceptable to the majority of NSW cyclists.
What’s next? There are more protest rides organised for January and February by various cycling organisations so check our facebook page for some of these events. (Omar is this correct? Who looks after facebook?)
Why bother? We, the ACP, encourage you to attend our cycling alliances’ protests and activities. As a cycling community if we form a groundswell of people, from all walks of life, that believe these laws are a step backward for our health, the environment and liveable cities and communicate this to the politicians that this proposed legislation is not acceptable, then we can effect change. Get involved and take action.
