XRBOSTON/Car Free Boston World Car Free Day Rebel Ride Friday September 23rd Copley 5PM

Extinction Rebellion and Car Free Boston have teamed up to hold an action Friday afternoon after-work at 5PM ET to celebrate World Car Free Day. They will be joining 50 countries and over 1,000 cities in imagining what a future without cars could be like.  “We need transformative change in mobility to safe, clean, quiet transportation that doesn’t destroy our biosphere.”*

“The event will start in Copley Square and travel around 10 miles total and will finish in Dewey Square. We will meander at a slow pace (< 10 mph). Bring lights, music, costumes, flags and positive vibes. We will be taking a lane on open streets, with safety in numbers. If you have experience corking (marshaling) let us know.”*

“Extinction Rebellion is a strictly non-violent movement, whose overall ambition is an international rebellion that helps humanity to turn quickly onto a course that is compatible with life on earth, and to build resilient communities in the face of ecological and societal crisis. We operate under the principles of Holacracy with a decentralized structure.”**
