Amsterdam 1972


 

Children living in the Amsterdam neighbourhood De Pijp fight for a play street without cars in 1972. More info: http://bicycledutch.wordpress.com/201…

A reminder that Amsterdam didn’t become a cycling mecca on accident. It took combative direct action against cars to reclaim streets for people. When people say their city can’t be Amsterdam, remind them of this radical history.
