Media Coverage of Stripping away our safety protest

Great media coverage for the protest on Friargate objecting to Derby City Council’s ridiculous approach to improving air quality by removing cycling infrastructure.

Derby Telegraph gave some publicity for the event the day before and then reported on the actual event a week or so later – see here (and ignore the normal moronic comments which are nothing to do with the subject matter of the article.

Coverage on the BBC web site.

Saturday”s East Midlands Today news round up led with the protest. A clip of the program can be seen here (you might need to download this file and then open an appropriate video playing app on your computer – about 50MB to download).

National coverage from the road.cc news website.

Lots of photos to be seen on the Derby Cycling Group Facebook page.

Twitter included a lot of coverage including tweets from Chris Williamson MP and Councillors Martin Rawson and Nadine Peatfield

Excellent work by all the organisers.
