Don't believe the hype!

With all this mass hysteria being generated about Mayday, I thought I'd send in a report I wrote of last year's Mayday in an attempt to calm people's fears. It is very different from the accounts by the mainstream media, and shows that it is indeed meant to be a carnaval. Have fun.

My younger sister is an undergraduate at Penn State University, where an escalating series of hate letters to black leaders, athletes, and athletes' parents has culminated in the death of an unidentified person (the sender of the hate mail has taken credit for the murder). While the mail has been sent assiduously since last October, President Graham Spanier and the PSU administration have done next to nothing to protect the lives and well-being of their students.

RTS MayDay statement

29-04-2001 21:05

The fact that Reclaim The Streets has not been involved in the logistical
planning for this year's MayDay has been seen by the corporate media
as a split in the movement. But there are many groups and affiliations,
each with their own analysis and focus, who all oppose the globalisation and the oppression of the capitalist system. MayDay belongs to each and every one of us. [...]

Reclaim the Government

29-04-2001 20:01

Reclaim the Streets is great, increasingly successful and says a lot. A horizontal move might be to Reclaim the Government. After all, the government is ours in theory - and should be ours in practice. It has been bought by corporations, but it's our right to own it and control it. We should take it back.

Petition to sort out the media

29-04-2001 20:00

What we need is a column in a major (broadsheet) newspaper to be given to somebody who is more informed about the youth's political issues such as the anti-capitalist demonstrations, hackers and youth culture. This column should be given a decent space alongside the more established columnists, and it should be written by a variety of young people (perhaps a different person for each day of the week, giving seven columnists in total).

Reclaim the Streets

Dear Friends,

I was at the MayDay rally last year…and had the opportunity to do an extensive photo-essay on the events, in colour as well as in black and white. I am sending some colour-photos and one black-and-white photo as a series of attachments by e-mail. I would greatly appreciate your comments.

Please could you let me know whether you of any attempt to organize an exhibition of photographs and other media material from the events of May Day 2000.

With greetings and best wishes.

In solidarity,

Santosh George
