So what are all you people going to do for it?
I wonder if all us UK comrades could meet up in a city and be red together, I was thinking leeds/manchester, what do you guys say?

What am I going to do? Absolutely nothing. (Which is actually something when taken into contrast with my usually busy Monday schedule).

I'm going to watch a Soviet parade video, hang up my Soviet banners and decorate the inside of my house with Soviet slogans, and pictures. Listen to the Soviet Anthem while saluting the flag, and pay tribute to all the hard accomplishments and sacrifices the people have made the world over. Hurrah!

Not sure what I'm gonna do yet... I think I'll piss everyone off and spread as much propoganda as possible. Then I'll get together with some friends in Celebration in which they will not understand what it is I'm celebrating because all my friends are dirty evil capitalists.

Dirty evil capitalists in Russia?

Did you have the standard May Day parade there in Croatia? It didn't wake me up today. It usually wakes me up with all the music. Maybe they cancelled it because of the EU. Who knows.

Yes we did. Well every city organised something. They are giving free beans here
Post 01 May 2004, 12:44

The Socialist International declared May Day the official workers holiday back in the 1800's and it has been ever since.

That picture from Montreal is incredible, Its the kind of May Day parade I dream of having in Edmonton.

I went to London for May Day. Lots of anarchists about, as well as the wide assortment of socialists and also greens. Its good stuff, and a good reminder that there are a lot of leftists out there which gives hope.

Funnily enough, May the 1st is also my birthday which i'm quite proud of!
