A1. Happy May Day, Four Times Over Already
Dateline: May Day Parade & Carnival, Parliament Square, London, UK, 14:00-17:00, Sat 01 May 10 – G20 Meltdown mobilised thousands to the Bank of England on 01 April 2009, and Election Meltdown repeated the feat on International Workers Day 2010, with four convergent May Day Parades converging outside the House of Conmens in Parliament Square for Carnival festivities. Four bosses' lackey politicians were executed in effigy, Thursday's forthcoming election was declared null-&-void, and we took the roadway for a dance-floor and held it, till heavy rain stopped play around 17:00.

01-05-2010 21:39

The antiwar movement everywhere should be extremely alarmed about the Obama Administration’s declaration in April that Washington can target Iran with nuclear weapons. Although vague “all options are on the table” warnings were also issued under George W. Bush, now the threat of a pre-emptive nuclear strike on Iran is enshrined in the revised Nuclear Posture Review of the United States.

Nottingham Free School's May Day Discussion

30-04-2010 09:39

With Mayday coming soon the Nottingham Free School decided to arrange an open discussion on some of the issues surrounding the day. This discussion took place at the Sumac last Sunday night and is scheduled to be the first in a series which will take place on the final Sunday of each month. The hope is to create a regular space in which we can learn collectively and share our ideas and understandings of issues which strike us to have a particular relevancy. On Sunday we hoped to discuss the nature of class struggle today, as well as the different forms that resistance to capitalism can take, and this was in many ways a success.
