  • Bipedal, By Pedal! #2


For this issue BPBP2 editor-dude Joe Biel collected legal documents pertaining to the Portland Police Department's nefarious, illegal crackdown campaign on the local Critical Mass movement. Obtained by Freedom of Information Requests, Biel shows through once-secret police and court documents that Portland Critical Mass did not in fact die out, it was brutally torn down by the cops in an organized campaign of intimidation and spy work. The Portland Police broke the law and Critical Mass was the causality. Portland is, of course, one of the best North American cities for cycling and Critical Mass is gone.

This zine is a rally call for bike activists. Don't let this happen in your hometown! If that isn't interesting enough, the documents are redone as Mad Libs. This is a companion piece to Biel's upcoming documentary, Aftermass: A Post Critical Mass Portland.
