May 1st (May Day) is shaping up to be quite a day of resistance, with strikes by the ILWU, the Teamsters, Postal Workers, plus immigrant rights rallies, and peace and impeachment activities.
It’s Mission Accomplished Day, Downing Street Minutes Day, and May Day – the original Labor Day, which is celebrated everywhere except the country of its birth, the USA.
AfterDowningStreet.org proposed protests outside the local offices of all 435 Members of Congress at noon, and the response was enthusiastic. (It doesn’t have to be noon if another time like 9am or 5pm is better for your local group.) Would you like to get involved?
