reprint of may day events today at 4:30 pm
Hope to see everyone on May Day!

Tuesday, May 1--MAY DAY!!
Gather at the North Park Blocks (NW Park and Burnside) at 4pm
March down Broadway at 4:30pm
Rally at PSU at 6pm

The march (now permitted by the city)
will make three brief stops:

Stop 1: Hilton (scene of police violence last year)
Here we will talk about police repression against May Day, against people in Northeast Portland, and against people of color--highlighting the case of
Jose Santos Victor Mejia Poot.

Stop 2: Oregon Steel
Here we talk about workers' rights, recent victories, and the ongoing struggle at Oregon Steel--Steelworker Nick Mikatich from Colorado will be
speaking.

Stop 3: Oregonian
Here we will talk about the struggle against corporate globalization, and the FTAA. We will also present the Oregonian with a People's PUlitzer for their
outstanding pro-corporate coverage on these issues.

Also: volunteers are needed to help set up at PSU at 3:45-4:30 (you won't miss the march) and someone to watch the room from 4:30pm to 5:30pm
contact Andy Davis at 503-232-9247

Thanks!
