And so according to that Gregorian calendar on the wall, or table, yesterday was that International Workers Day of May Day in that city of New York and around the world I assume. And those global revolutions of May Day, Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter are still moving fast, I think.
And according to that Mayday Glitter Graphics website, May Day – Beltane The first of May has long been celebrated with the traditional rite of spring. Dancing around the May pole is a tradition in many different cultures that dates back for centuries. While May Day has its roots in the pagan festival of Beltane, it is still celebrated throughout England and Europe as a celebration of fertility and the coming of the new spring.
And so I found myself passing by the peripheral and outer edges of one of those May Day events at Union Square Park in New York City yesterday, enough to take a few photos with that social media cell phone camera as in those photos that find themselves posted above of that Peoples Power Assemblies, NYC Shut It Down: The Grand Central Crew #blacklivesmatte, International League of Peoples’ Struggle – ILPS US, Cosecha NYC and Workers World Party May Day Strike to Defend Migrants, Refugees & All Workers! May Day event. And according to that Facebook event calendar, some of those other May Day events in that city of New York area on this day were #MAYDAY: WE SHUT IT DOWN #maydaynyc, Mayday Anti-Speciesist + Anti-Decolonial Nonhuman Rights Bloc and May 1st NYC: Basta Ya! Stop The Attacks on Immigrants. And what does this have to do with a No Police State. Have a great day after May Day and more.
