Mini-mass for a bike-accessible McGill campus

From QPIRG McGill:

Are you sick of being told by McGill security that you are going too fast,
too slow, the wrong way on your bike or on foot?!?

Join the Reclaim Your Campus day of action on Sept 10th for a critical
mass on McGill Campus.

Take back the PUBLIC in public education! Break down the GATES of this
gated community!

September 10th at Milton Gates at 12.30pm
Bring your bikes, bells and whistles!
