Origins of May Day
History of NY May Day

New Media Coverage over your Mainstream ones. (if they decide to cover it or not is iffy anyways.) Media for the 99%
How can something that has been so part of the American past become so indemnified as some "communist trend." (No, @Lark, I'm not going to go there because I am not the one who make these sort of comparisons) And why is it that we are the only nation where we don't even get a day off on such a day?
Anyhow, there is a new global movement coming to town as May Day seems to be a special day to most nations outside of America. Protest (even if it is as little as not using facebook for a day) whatever, make your voices heard because your big banks are already scared shitless about this day.
I'm quite sure some European Nations will have an even bigger impact on this day seeing how messed up Greece, Spain, Portugal, and Italy are over there.
Anyhow, protest any way you like (though not in a break-stuffy kind of way.) Don't use your Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, etc cards and banks for the day unless it is union operated. Bring Facebook to a halt for the day (for each person not on, the more the network dissipates.) Use little to no gas for the day, don't pay for anything or pay little for it during May Day. Do something you see as valid, but won't hurt you. Don't tell your boss to F*** Off just because it is May Day, but throw some passive-aggressiveness over his way.
Find some way to protest, turn off your favorite T.V. station or T.V. together. Just something....
