Calling all cyclists! You are invited to, and needed for, a special critical mass ride to demand that the City of Chicago declare a climate emergency and initiate an immediate just transition and emergency mobilization effort to restore a safe climate.
October 7th kicks off Extinction Rebellion's International Fall Rebellion and Chicago is joining XR chapters all around the globe to demand that the government tell the truth about the climate and wider ecological emergency.
As a critical mass of cyclists, we will have a special role as part of a larger demonstration that involves multiple groups creating non-violent disruption to downtown Chicago's business-as-usual. One of the groups will be led by the youth who led the recent Global Climate Strike and other groups will consist of individuals from XR Chicago and many other organizations in Chicago. This is BIG. And all are welcome and needed.
We will meet by the sculpture in the center of Daley Plaza at 4pm. The ride will leave promptly at 4:30pm and will end back in Daley Plaza.
We need you, your heart, and your cycling superpowers.
