TOTW: May Day and other memories
This May Day, we are taking a look at the remembrance of things past. Anarchist commemorations, celebrations, and events that have garnered an annual follow-up or situations that may.
How was your May Day? Did you call in sick to work? Participate in building the general strike? Support striking workers in a march? How do we remember and celebrate as anarchists? What are you remembering? What are you celebrating?
Are there other anarchist commemorations throughout the year that you have a strong connection with?
An incomplete list of anarchist remembrances throughout the year:
- December 6th (Greece – Alexis Grigorpoulos)
- March 29th (Chile – Day of the Young Combatant)
- December 31st (International - prison noise demos)
- June 11th (International - Long-term support for anarchist prisoners)
Please feel free to share some May Day related personal experiences and report backs here that might not make it to the general news feed; or tales from prior years and what made it a memorable experience.
Happy May Day and beyond from thecollective
