Time’s Up Press Conference at City Hall on Excessive Critical Mass Expenditures
For the past 28 months, the NYPD has been harassing law abiding cyclists on the Critical Mass bike rides. Now the NYPD is proposing new parade permit rules that target the Critical Mass rides but would also affect thousands of other New Yorkers. It’s time for New York taxpayers to be told of the outrageous amount of money the Bloomberg administration is spending on its harassment campaign of cyclists. A very detailed, thorough cost analysis of these expenditures has been completed by economist Charlie Komanoff and Time’s Up!, along with the assistance and support of civil rights attorneys Norman Siegel and Gideon Oliver, and the organizations FreeWheels and 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care.
(Video footage will be made available documenting excessive expenditures on past Critical Mass rides by the Time’s Up! video collective.)
Come blow the lid off the Bloomberg Administration’s excessive expenditures selectively targeting Critical Mass cyclists.
Speakers will include:
- Charlie Komanoff, Economist
- Norman Siegel, Civil Rights Attorney
- Mark Taylor, Assemble for Rights NYC
- Marquez Claxton, Retired Police Detective, served 20 years with the NYPD, from 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care
