Do you remember the March *2006* Critical Mass? Yah, I know it was a
long time ago, but this particular Critical Mass might stand out in your
memory because of the actions of one Pittsburgh Police Officer, Eugene
Hlavac - you remember, the cop who drove his car into the middle of a
bunch of slow-moving cyclists, then blocked the ride, started calling
everyone motherfuckers and smartasses, arrested four people, and broke
up the ride for no apparent reason?

Maybe this youtube video will remind you:

Well, it's been a long, slow, and aggravating process, but the Citizen
Police Review Board is finally holding a full public hearing into
Officer (now Sergent) Hlavac's actions. The Hearing is *this Thursday*
(1/24), so come out and show some support for Critical Mass and
cyclist's rights to the road!

Thursday, January 24th
6:00 PM
City Council Building, 5th Floor
414 Grant Street, Downtown
