Each participant should wear a black armband, or a red armband if they have been injured themselves.

Riders should be silent as far as possible. It isn’t a protest in the
traditional sense: there will be no banners or slogans.

it is a ride to remember and to think and not to be outwardly angry but instead to let our silence and our numbers have the required effect.

"The Ride Of Silence is a free ride that asks its cyclists to ride no
faster than 12 mph and remain silent during the ride. There is no
brochure, no sponsors, no registration fees and no t-shirt. The ride,
which is being held during Bike Safety month (U.S), aims to raise theawareness of motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways. The ride is also a chance to showrespect for those who have been killed or injured."

"arms of mass resistance"
Precisely this emancipatory lesson should be taught to Bush and his military industrial complex. There are more economic, political and social "arms of mass resistance" in store, stockpiled across the globe, that could be applied to topple the "Empire."
