Attack on critical mass in Brazil

An atrocious incident, whatever one's view of critical mass.

1 March update: If you want more news, The Urban Country has good coverage of what has happened since - as well as some rather unpleasant reader's feedback underneath the article.

Also I recommend Peter Miller's take on "What makes the news and what doesn't".

Horrible. Wasn't aware, that fighting car dominance is sometimes - well, a fight.

Dreadful. I hope that all those caught up in this recover from both the physical and psychological injuries. I'll keep my thoughts about the driver to myself.

My goodness. This is just horrible. That car didn't even try to slow down. Does anyone know how all these people are doing?

Anneke: The Urban Countryhas good coverage of what has happened since. To summarise the situation so far, the driver's charge has been upgraded to attempted murder. I understand that by some miracle there were no deaths, and I've also read that all the cyclists who were injured have been released from hospital.
