IF YOU RIDE A MOTORBIKE OR SCOOTER
WHATEVER YOU HAD PLANNED FOR TUESDAY, 31ST MARCH @ 7PM CANCEL IT!
YOU NEED TO BE OUTSIDE WESTMINSTER CITY HALL, 64 VICTORIA STREET, SW1
In August 2008, Westminster City Council, in direct opposition to every Transport Authority in the UK who see powered two-wheelers as the solution to inner-city pollution & congestion, but also the Conservative Party to whom they claim to belong, and by using the flimsiest of justification of supposedly "recouping" the £23,000 cost of providing more parking spaces, introduced under an "experimental traffic order" what is now recognised as the most dangerous piece of anti-motorcycle/scooter legislation ever seen in the world...charging for parking.
In response to this blatant removal of a privilege enjoyed by riders all over the world, the No To Bike Parking Tax Campaign was formed in September 2008, and has steadily exposed the misleading statements of the protagonists of this scheme to both their own fellow Councillors and the public, discovering that since its inception, it has already raked in over £2.5m from hard-working, honest and conscientious citizens, this figure raising every day
Abetted by a series of on-street demonstrations the likes of which have never been seen by this Council in its history, the Campaign has attracted unequivocal support from both the motorcycle community by way of BMF & MAG, and the mainstream by way of the much-heralded Tax Payers' Alliance.
As a result, the Campaign has been offered the opportunity to present its findings to a select committee of Westminster Councillors on 31st March at 7pm.
This also affords us the opportunity to demonstrate the real depth of resentment towards this tax, and for that, we need you there, outside Westminster City Hall.
We will meet at Trafalgar Square, between 5pm-6.15pm, for the mother of all demonstrations, which will leave the Square for a short and very angry ride to Westminster City Hall by 6.45pm, in what needs to be the largest ride-out ever seen in the capital.
Make sure you take the time out to be there. If you are coming from outside London take time off.
Well the choice is simple....
PROTEST NOW OR PAY FOREVER EVERYWHERE!
