“If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats we call her nuts. But when people pathologically hoard so much cash that they impoverish the entire nation, we put them on the cover of Fortune magazine and pretend that they are role models.”

 Occupy: May Day

HolidaysFrom: Norman Emmons

To the editor,

The first of May for centuries was the celebration of spring. In the 1880's, after the Haymarket affair in 1886, in Chicago, in which several innocent men who were organizing the 8- hour work day, and the right of workers to organize, were sent to the gallows, the beginning of May also became an international workers day.

This was established in Paris on July 14, 1889, along with a U.S. delegate, when the International Labor Congress was asked to adapt May 1st as International Labor day , all over the world, in part to memorialize the Haymarket martyrs. This day is now recognized everywhere except in the USA and English speaking Canada. ...

The Occupy Movement, or the 99%, has chosen this May day as a continuation of a major struggle against capitalism, which has brought about increased poverty, a loss of jobs, destruction of the environment, a loss of civil rights,a worsening class struggle, and the death and suffering of people all over the world because of our imperialistic wars. This movement, if we hope to have a more compassionate world, must not give up or stop working for a sustainable world for everyone.

Quote by Frederick Douglas:

"Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe."
