Sunday 19 Feb – action against scheme to welcome more cars

February 16th, 2012 | Posted by wheeliefine in advocacy | events

This Sunday (19th February) HKCAll will support the march calling for the Government to halt the ‘Ad Hoc Quota Trial Scheme for Cross Boundary Private Cars’, which will bring more cars on to our road network, when what is needed is a thorough review of the way we use our urban space and a shift towards individual mobility – on foot and by bike.  Why should 80-90% of the width between buildings be dedicated to motor vehicles, while pedestrians are squeezed into rat-alley pavements and cyclists are despised?

Hope you can join us at 3pm, outside Sogo / Great George Street in Causeway Bay.  If you bring your bike, we’ll walk with the group as far as Wanchai, and then ride through Central to meet them at Tamar, to deliver our message to the government.

The march/ride is organised by Land Justice League and supported by many other groups, including Clean Air Network and Designing Hong Kong.  Over the weekend, others, including Civic Party, the Democratic Party, the League of Social Democrats and the Liberal Party are taking action against this impending scheme, and highlighting the lack of sustainable urban planning, and the secretive and high-handed way it has been foisted on us.

See you on Sunday!
