We are a group of people alarmed about the catastrophe in the Gulf, and disturbed by the City of San Francisco’s impotence when it comes to making the city safe for those who get around by bicycle or foot. In particular, we demand that the city immediately shut the Fell St. entrances to the Arco (BP) station at Fell and Divisadero, prohibit left turns onto Divisadero, remove the parking on the south side of Fell between Scott and Baker, and build a safe, attractive bikeway that connects the Wiggle directly to the Panhandle.
It is not fair or just to inflict the threat of death or injury on those who choose to use less oil in their daily transport. In fact, dangerous streets keep us addicted to oil by scaring people into motorized lives of inactivity.
We will continue to take direct action to seal off the hazardous Fell St. entrances, until the City steps up and protects the lives of its citizens.
Join us every Friday 5:30-7:30pm at the corner of Fell and Divisadero Streets, San Francisco.
