It is known as May Day, but in 2001 Italian collectives changed it to a more appropriate 'MAYDAY', as in the international call of distress. It makes sense for it sure does feel like we are under attack from all quarters these days.
Our governments, the economy, and the environment are all slow motion emergencies, and if we don't act to staunch the blood, we deserve the consequences.
On Tuesday, May 1, 2012 we have an opportunity to join together in an action that may be the only thing that can jar our governments out of their delusional course of action. A general strike shows who really has the power.
Stop attacks on workers. Stop the deterioration of our rights and freedoms.
Stop police brutality. Stop poverty.
Money for jobs, education, and the environment... not war.
End privatization. End corporate rule....
RETURN POWER TO THE PEOPLE
