Choose Car Culture & Capitalism?

Choose dead pedestrians, dead cyclists, dead car passengers, dead motorists, dead children, dead animals, dead trees, dead cities, dead tube & rail passengers, dead production-line workers, death by debt, death by work, death by war, death by pesticides, death by pollution, death by consumption, death by boredom…
your death, my death, our death and our dead world.

Or Choose Life & Freedom?


This is a critical mass linking in with this year’s Mayday carnival & protests and the Mayday Festival of Alternatives.

Against a car culture driven by the capitalist nightmare, for an environmentally integrated transport system driven by our needs not capitalist profit; for cleaner air and healthier lives not more traffic congestion, pollution and cuts in public transport; for alternative and free forms of transport, not restrictions on our ability to travel across cities and borders.

This Mayday, take the day off, go on strike, ring in well,come ride, play & protest with us on May 1st!

Freedom or Capitalism? It's Our Choice...
