May Day in Oly expression of Freedom & Liberty & No War
May Day Under the Dark Shadow of the State May Day in Oly an expression of Freedom and Liberty with resistence against war, oppression and dumb rules made by dumber 'residents' high on power. No blood oil to burn - all foot power to reclaim the streets. A day away from our chattel to say for Labour Day in Oly-Ox-Run-Free!

May Day article in PSU's Daily Newspaper
Fight for your right
A diverse group celebrates May Day with a common connection of working class identity

Jered Fisher -  jeredf@vg.pdx.edu
May 04, 2004


Union members, presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich and his supporters, anarchists and socialists gathered in the North Park Blocks to march through downtown Portland this Saturday in recognition of May Day, also known as the international workers holiday.

"May Day started out as the struggle for the eight hour day," Mark Downs, an International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 19 member, said.

The controversial theme of this year's march was the quickly approaching presidential election. Presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich spoke at a planned stop in the march.

Some felt Kucinich's presence at the march was not fitting with the history of May Day. "We hate that a presidential candidate is here - we didn't come here for that," said Jane, a PSU student, "We are here because we care and want to show support [for workers rights]."

A poem a day
From my book of poetry (I later integrated poetry into my instrumental musical composition (March3 1994, I still remember when I did it) and put pieces in with my writing - like instead of writing a boring chapter in, say, fiction, just write a poem to move the action on instead and, POOF! Fun-ness!).
Happy belated MAYDAY

MAY DAY, MAY DAY: Is help on the way?
After attending the May Day march, I wonder what exactly is going on here? The history of May Day is a dispute between union members and anarchists, but at its heart, May Day is a celebration for the working class. The struggles of class war and the fight for workers rights is the spirit of May Day...and, you know, it seems Portland has lost its spirit.

Photo tips for May Day
While you are marching today, please photograph as many police officers as possible and write down either their name or badge number. We have a copy of the roster from a friend that was done with it, so even partially identified cops can usually be matched to the deck if they are part of it. The following tips are good things to keep in mind at any civil unrest where you take photos.

I call upon all the people of the United States to join in support of this national observance. I also call upon government officials to display the flag of the United States on all government buildings on Loyalty Day.

There's only one thing missing from this victory, however, (aside from a whole bunch of people that used to be alive, that is), and that's a theme song. No imperialist act of naked aggression should be without a theme song...we are pretty sure it says that somewhere in the PNAC document...

pictures of critical mass arrests
pictures of critical mass arrests A police car started tailing critical mass as we rode up 11th Avenue towards the library. I had the feeling that he was waiting for us to violate even the smallest bicycling statue. Later I told an indy videographer that I thought we had ran a red light. Well, we certainly ran a few of those on small streets, what cyclist doesn't? However, I don't think we ran a red light after the police cruiser was riding with us. (article 1)

May Day gives us focus on our collective purpose. It's appropriate to remember the day with a gift exchange. My gift to my brothers and sisters is information that may help them prevent the election to office of a major union-buster. John Ball, the Chief Financial (Finagling) Officer of Multnomah County, has at least one skeleton in his closet. Let's out the man for what he is, a shark in a silk suit.
