    Next BIG Protest with StoneY and the Unions

    Ok everyone
    I have had a few people mention there is no defined thread for the NEXT PROTEST

    I have sevreal Unions on board for a big march on Parliament, and the wheels are starting to roll
    Dates set for 16th February, at this point its a logical date as the Corrections Union are having a march the week before, and some other group have one the week after so we get a finite window of oppotunity to pull this off.

    I have requested permission from the Speaker to enter the grounds en-masse on 16th February.

    This is about more than just Bikers but we want to have a strong presence there.

    I need about 3-400 bikers to attend on the day and make a visible presence at the front of the house, but this time speakers will all be Unionists and Academics and other disafeccted groups (is that the right term?)

    Its gonna take some work to pull it off again, and I am hoping we get the same support we got last time for the BIKEOI, but wont hold my breath.

    Anyone keen to help, PM me
    And I aint talking about handing out fliers, I mean WORK and responsibility for some of the organisation...(nearly killed myself the last time with exhaustion.)

    This iwll be along the same lines as the BIKEOI, peacefull but a strong message
    Want loads of signs, banners, and a good chant, one I think we have heard before, LOL

    StoneY
    Just ride.

    Now remember this ones not all about us bikers, we are all welcome but its not expected that the thousands of bikes from last time will be there. A good few hundred- a thousand maybe, but yeah lower N.I. can sure represnt.

    We wont have convoy parks and escorts and the stadium will be a foot gathering spot if were llowed. so the bikes will come to Molesworth st if I can get the council onside again
    And of course thousands of non bikers will be there, trudhing past our machines....we will be more symbolic than the main event this time if you get the drift.

    Be good to have a few slow cruisers that wont overheat lead the footmarch, but do such bikes exist? @ kms of crawl speed in front of a foot march?......
    Just ride.

    I'm in too.

    I'd loved to ride on parliment again just to show the pricks I haven't forgotten.
    Arguing with an Engineer is like wrestling a pig in mud.

    After a while you realise the pig is enjoying it.

    Good on ya StoneY for doing this. We all appreciate the effort you've been putting into it. I can't promise anything because I might not be in town in that period, but If I end up being around, I will sure lend a hand.

    I have requested 12-2pm Parliament Access Chanceyy mate.
    So much the same timing as last time, but no laager's set up at Avalon and Papakowhai, I want all riders to just show up in individual groups, marshals to park em up, and you know, if Molesworth St ends up blocked by bikes...I dont care (hint hint)

    We will NOT have the Stadium for the bikes this time, the foot march will be gathering there if the Stadium agrees (another collection too)
    I will be sorting the toilets again bbut the Unions are picking up those fee's this time

    I hope to have a good show of bikers, and I envisage we are already all there when the footmarch and our 'symbolic' slow bike convoy leading the marchers (10 or so cruiser style bikes is the idea) arive, there will already be a crowd of bikers, and we welcome them to Parliament, a quick sound bite along the lines of:

    "In November we Bikers came to this place, as Phil Goff called it OUR place, and said 'Bullshit.' Well, we are back, and guess who we brought along, the REST OF NEW ZEALAND!! (Name a few of the union gorups here) have joined us today to say, 'NO WAY!! Get your filthy hands of our ACC!'"

    Or somewhat like that

    Thanks for standing up to lead a ride in Chanveyy, and others, but the focus is NOT on a RIDE this time, its on getting sheer numbers of our non biker mates in the grounds, while taking the LEAD and showing we do more than just ride our bikes too, that we give a shit about the rest of NZ as well (even cagers dare I say it!)
    Just ride.

    Just a quick question ... why have a foot march that will make no impact ...e.g. from stadium to parliament .... something from Civic Square may be more appropriate this time ... as it is not a biker focus ... if they left from Civic square down mercer to willis then down lambton quay .. since it is on foot that would create a huge impact.

    The march route will be down Featherston to Willis and back up Lambton...not just the 200m we walked in our bike gear, and already Police and Council are getting tooled up to accomodate us
    And no WAY civic Square will hold the numbers we are looking at, its way too small


    There's a LOT to be planned yet why is everyone jumping to conclusions?
    It took 4 weeks to make BIKEOI happen, so obviously its now time to plan this one, but I want the Unions to do thier share.
    Im not going to work myself to death again, and if I dont get any positive support I will walk away from the whole thing

    Did I let you all down last time?
    Either take over, or follow my lead, I really dont mind which, but these are mere details that have plenty of time to be ironed out and there is no need for any panic

    Allready have Parliamentary intelligence and security examining my draft action plan, already have a rally point sorted, already have authorities alerted....its just getting the people on the day now
    Just ride.
