Bikers for a Free Burma event

As long as they don't block traffic, I'm all for this:

"Important upcoming event! No biking necessary!
On Saturday, Oct. 13th Bikers for a Free Burma will host a rally and
bike ride in recognition of the gross human rights abuses taking place
in Burma and in solidarity with the brave people who have risked their
lives to make a statement against their government.
First, a bike march will leave around 12pm from outside Grandma's
Saloon and Grill at Seven Corners (1810 Washington Ave S,
Minneapolis). Bicyclists are encouraged to decorate their bikes or
carry signs for the seven mile ride along University Avenue to the
State Capitol. At 2pm we will rally on the steps of the Capitol after
the bicyclists arrive. Attendees will be addressed by leaders from
the Karen Community of Minnesota and other concerned leaders from the
Twin Cities.
Those who are not interested in the biking component are strongly
encouraged to still attend the rally at the Capitol. Those who don't
know much about the issue are also encouraged to come and learn.
People who have questions and/or are interested in
participating in the organizing effort should contact Tim
Harlan-Marks: THMfromMN@gmail.com or 763-226-9989 or Stephanie Weir:
stephanieweir@gmail.com or 248-379-2911. For more information, visit
bikersforafreeburma.org and see attached flyer.
In solidarity!
Bikers for a Free Burma"
