May Day march was big unpermitted party! Occupez les bons temps rouler!

OCCUPIED DENVER-- If Denver Occupiers accomplished one thing this May Day, in solidarity with global calls for a general strike, and in sync with more aggressive protests in Oakland and elsewhere, Occupy Denver had a great time. THAT WAS ALL IT HAD TO BE. The crowd was largely young, with the energy, idealism and ideology reminiscent of the early days last fall. OCCUPEZ LES BONS TEMPS ROULER!

UltraLeftism fails to revitalize May Day in America, or to revitalize the Occupy Movement either

Pity the poor Occupy Movement, as Establishment liberal types, Ron Paul Right Wingers, and now Ultraleftists all try out the shortcomings of their own models of disorganization and find them all to be totally lacking. Yesterday on May Day the UltraLeftists had their turn to further disorganize Occupy, as they called for a 'general strike' with their own subjective desires as the only 'force' actually desiring to go into any battle. The result? Nobody but the Black Bloc really had 'a good time', ...plus a few riot cops with their Darth Vader inspired weoponry in hand. 33059

So how is any of that 'legal'? And unlike executions, which most of the world condemns anyway, drone attacks are often very messy affairs where bystanders get executed as well as 'targets'. Hard to mount any argument that there is any legality to all of this, and yet that's exactly what the Obama Adminsitration and the US Democratic Party are now doing!

So what are The People supposed to now do in full accordance with the law to a body of government officials who are assassinating people outside of any real and recognized internationally law? That is the question of the day? May Day! It was bad enough when Bush was torturing people in secret but now we have Obama openly murdering people and calling it

National Day of Prayer versus May Day

A billion years to raise the tree frog   A hundred million years of lovers curling against each other in sleep   Half a million years of campfire sparks ascending to the stars   Twenty-one centuries since Spartacus and his fellow slaves brought Rome to its knees   Two centuries since the Luddites demonstrated the proper treatment of workplace technology   One hundred and twenty years since the Chicago government used the Haymarket disturbance to justify the execution of seven innocent men: "Hang these men and you kill Anarchy in this country!" 3327

May Day

On May 1st, 2008 the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) will stop-work for eight hours at all West Coast docks to protest the continued US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Transport and postal workers are joining in. A similar action last year in Australia led to violence. A 2003 antiwar dock worker protest in Long Beach met with unprecedented police brutality.
