SWARM THE COURTHOUSE!

SWARM THE COURTHOUSE!


When:
On Wednesday, March 10, 2004, from 8:15 am - 8:45 am


Where:
Outside the Pittsburgh City Court, Municipal Courts Building, 660 First Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15219 (next to the County Jail)


What:
A silent bicycle protest in the streets surrounding the Municipal Courts Building. Hopefully people can ride the whole half hour, but if they can only make it for 15 minutes that's OK also (we were thinking that this would make it easier on the messengers.)


Why:
Because the preliminary hearing of the woman who killed bicyclist Bob Hemelrick will be held at 8:30 am.

This will be a silent protest not only in Bob's memory but to commemorate all of the bikers that have been hit by vehicles this winter (and there were a lot, including one messenger who had to have his face reconstructed).

Spread the word.

BBC tape pass around
I hope your swell.

I just decided to start a postal tree of rawdolphin's Body, the BBC doco on me. But I only have the one valuable copy and am too lazy to make a copy (transport, yadda yadda)...I'm not certain of the easiest way to do this so ideas would be great. But I'll make a master list of addresses of people I trust not to rob each others houses and I'll mail the tape to someone willing to make a copy (I'm happy to re-pay) who will send me the original...so let me know if you are willing to make a copy (VHS 30min) or want to be on a master list AND swear to keep the tape moving (two weeks sound good?)...I can't think of a better way than a master address list.

I wish I had the technology to dub a tape. Maybe Carole Braun or Bob Devine or some Antioch ICMA type might do it? Whatever happens, keep me on the list.
