:laughing4: :imaposer: lets not split hairs. i think you might of been the only guy who took offense to that, im sure it took a lot of work from him, and cant really blaming him for taking a little bit of ownership. if you came you would have enjoyed his speech, he spoke at length about how all this wouldn't be possible without our support. teary eyed were we all...  :deal: so lets build it up not break it down. anyone can break things down.

anyhoo, objective achieved. if you focus on the intent and the outcome and forget the teeny slip up i say this was a win.

Found ICM!!! haha good to put a face to a name finally. went looking for him. pity you weren't there Ganjora.

:thumleft: good i was looking for a scapegoat as to who to blame for me being at work today.

now thats done, anyone of you volunteer to get some paint ball guns and shoot down some cameras? will have to disguise yoruselves and bikes and find a late quiet night? i would imagine getting caught will become a urban legend and probably a big fine / or jail time. if we get caught that is. talk is cheap.

may I suggest you refill the paint balls with acid (Keep frozen ) or some liquid that will damage the lenses.

I was caught in the taxi drama at the Buccleuch plaza.  Was fun but got a bit worried. Saw a baseball bat get properly broken over a guys head but the guy just carried on running.  Big respect.

postponed due to issues with the permits after there were some transgressions during the last ride.

Will see if I can find the relevant info & cross post

From James.

There is a swarm of fly's in the ointment right now and we have been advised to postpone our protest till a later date. There are a number of reasons for this and i'll try clarify as best I can, there might be some reading between the lines required, but in essence this is the gist of the issues.

With the last run, there were a number of violations that breached our permit. Some within our control others not, but the main issues were the use of alcohol before the ride, alleged claim people were stopping on the freeway and urinating on the streets, and mooning the gantries
.

We have been advised that our permit will be rejected, and that will mean us going to court to fight it. We do not have the funds to do that. However should we go ahead and win this, the story coming from the back benches is that it is a fait accompi that the hosts will be arrested if any violation of any law or by laws are observed. That means a 3 day stint for Shaun and myself. This is the way they plan to set an example of us. The arrests will be groundless, but will be carried out regardless. This is not BS, it comes from the horses mouth.

We are therefore postponing the protest in JHB, but all other BAT regions protests will continue as planned. A new date will be set, and the other group Admins and ourselves will sit down to discuss how to clean up the different FB and Web pages. There is a concept that we are hiding the other groups from the authorities, and some how planning to subvert the protest. We all now its BS, but SANRAL has long arms and deep pockets.

We are also to ensure that all groups that will be attending the new date (to be announced) must do so under a single banner. The Sec Police have been monitoring the various pages, and gathering info to shut us down. Our new JMPD host isnt a friendly guy and proved his bias and attitude at the last run, we can say that we will be apposed at every turn in the future. We need to present a clean act if we are to continue. Which we will, there is no going back on our protests, but we need to fix
whats broken.

Keep an eye out for the change of date, it will be announced as soon as we can find a date and are happy they have nothing on us, and that what went wrong in the past will be rectified.
