Won't the
streets

be better
without cars?
Not if
all that
replaces them
are aisles of
pedestrianised
consumption
or shopping
"villages"
safely protected
from the elements.
To be against
the car
for its own sake
is inane;
claiming
one piece
as the whole
jigsaw.

The struggle
for car-free space
must not be
separated from
the struggle
against global
capitalism -
for in truth
the former is
encapsulated
in the latter.
The streets
are as full
of capitalism
as of cars
and the
pollution
of capitalism
is
much
more
insidious
