The callout was issued by an ad hoc collection of individuals involved in peace, transport, climate change and anti-capitalist campaigns. The Bristol ride assembled from 5pm on College Green in central Bristol, on a lovely autumnal evening. A number of participants came in Halloween or other fancy dress, and there were at least 3 mobile sound systems (lots of people had cameras - anyone got any good pictures???). The ride was good natured, but very slow! Riders worked well to ensure motorists didn't drive into the mass, and motorists were generally well behaved. It proceeded from College Green around St Augustines Parade, where it was held right up by traffic jams, down south along Redcliffe Way & Redcliffe Hill, over Bedminster bridge, and along York Rd to Temple Meads. It went north along Temple Gate, temple Way and Bond Street, before proceeding up Stokes Croft. It then ended on City Road at about 7.30pm, where a Halloween lantern procession was beginning....This world is not ours to ruin.
