"Workers of the world, awaken!
Break your chains. demand your rights.
AII the wealth you make is taken
By exploiting parasites.
Shall you kneel in deep submission
From your cradles to your graves?
ls the height of your ambition
To be good and willing slaves?"

Bored by the prospect of another May Day "celebration" that threatens to be neither enjoyable nor interesting, a few radicals in Portland, Oregon have decided to shake things up as they can.
As we have seen in the past, when workers unions take action, it works. But what about the workers union we never hear about, the poor workers union?

The current condition for the homeless is horrible these days, but what are we doing to stop it?
is there anything going on this year for May Day?
Who's organizing the May Day protest? Will there be one? We need to start organizing now. If actions are not made, it'll be as if we gave up. Our power is dying. Our events are getting smaller and smaller. Isn't this our wake up call to do something?
