TO START THE DAY, LET'S REVIEW DOUBLE KANSAS CITY CITIZEN MEDIA CLIPS FEATURING INTERNATIONAL WORKER'S DAY PROTEST!!!
A note from local citizen media . . .
"Although the biggest Kansas City May Day event this year prominently featured politicians, there was a great turnout of sincere grassroots anti-capitalists. So maybe next year we can live up to the true spirit of May Day . . ."
"May Day traditions can remind us of the cultural heritage we are in danger of losing. Perhaps by celebrating May Day in its numerous local ways, we can help to write identity, heritage, and history back into our communities and back into the land. The diversity of May Day celebrations is resistant to the uniformity and commercialization that characterizes so much of our society, and which now monopolizes annual events such as Christmas and, more recently, St Valentine’s Day. So let us celebrate May Day as a festival independent of the forces of standardization and profit: sing your own songs, dance your own dances, bring something special to you – blossom, guests, joy – into your home, and banish the evil spirits". -Nick Groom is a Professor of English at the University of Exeter
