Don’t invite me to the square

It makes me feel a mixture of surprise and tedium to keep finding gmail addresses on mailing lists of alternative projects that claim to be fighting against the big megacorporations.

Years ago I wrote this article for indymedia colleagues who invited me to a telegram group, and for others who started communicating via twitter in preparation for indymedia’s 20th anniversary celebration.

No me invites a la plaza

Me produce una mezcla de sorpresa y de tedio seguir encontrando direcciones de gmail en listas de correo de proyectos alternativos que dicen luchar contra las grandes megacorporaciones.

Hace años escribí este artículo para colegas de indymedia que me invitaron a un grupo de telegram, y para otros que empezaron a comunicarse a través de twitter para preparar la celebración del 20 aniversario de indymedia.

13th 4th of June

Another year of remembering, especially on this day, even if we remember most if not every day.

Another year of not being able to go to the place where it happened.

This year I posted this to the critical mass list because Critical Mass London gave some of us the joy of riding back

Dear Critical Mass London

thirteen years ago, we lost a friend while riding from London to Brighton.

A few days afterwards I wrote to this list to ask the mass to head to Brixton that month. I’m sure the conversation afterwards can still be read in the archives.

Critical Mass did indeed ride to the spot where the ride to Brighton had started, in Brixton, and what we did there, and the whole process, played an immense role helping us cope and start to recover from such a massive blow.

So, thank you, Critical Mass for giving us back the joy of riding. Please keep on riding
