May Day

It's May Day!

May Day occurs on May 1 and refers to the Haymarket affair or any of several public holidays. In many countries, May Day is synonymous with International Workers' Day, or Labour Day, which celebrates the social and economic achievements of the labour movement.

Have you been out protesting?

Sometimes I regret living in a small village... This is how people marched during May Day in Stockholm, Sweden, last year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJpLGhvlPUo

Stand up, all victims of oppression,

For the tyrants fear your might!

Don't cling so hard to your possessions,

For you have nothing if you have no rights!

Let racist ignorance be ended,

For respect makes the empires fall!

Freedom is merely privilege extended,

Unless enjoyed by one and all.

So come brothers and sisters,

For the struggle carries on.

The Internationale,

Unites the world in song.

So comrades, come rally,

For this is the time and place!

The international ideal,

Unites the human race.

Let no one build walls to divide us,

Walls of hatred nor walls of stone.

Come greet the dawn and stand beside us,

We'll live together or we'll die alone.

In our world poisoned by exploitation,

Those who have taken, now they must give!

And end the vanity of nations,

We've but one Earth on which to live.

So come brothers and sisters,

For the struggle carries on.

The Internationale,

Unites the world in song.

So comrades, come rally,

For .....

And so begins the final drama,

In the streets and in the fields.

We stand unbowed before their armour,

We defy their guns and shields!

When we fight, provoked by their aggression,

Let us be inspired by life and love.

For though they offer us concessions,

Change will not come from above!

So come brothers and sisters,

For the struggle carries on.

The Internationale,

Unites the world in song.

So comrades, come rally,

For ....
