Reclaim the streets-Hull
26th June@12
Meet up in Pearson Park

Reclaim the Streets is a global, decentralized direct action movement which uses street parties to take back public space - the street - from cars, corporations and the police state, and to return it to the public for socializing, bicycling, art, food, dancing, music, theatre, dialogue, community and creativity.

We think that life should be lived in the streets, not just in cars, living rooms, and cubicles. The streets connect us, they are a shared common space, and thus it is vital that we reconsider our relationship with them, and the way we hurry through them inside rolling steel cages, only to disappear into partitioned apartments, commercial spaces, into isolation. By stepping into the streets – together – we reclaim our humanity, and we breathe life back into an all too sterilized world.
