The history of Mayday is closely linked with the anarchist movement and the struggles of working people for a better world. Indeed, it originated with the execution of four anarchists in Chicago in 1886 for organizing workers in the fight for the eight-hour day. Thus May Day is a product of "anarchy in action" -- of the struggle of working people using direct action in labor unions to change the world ("Anarchism . . . originated in everyday struggles" -- Kropotkin)
Attention my fellow Anarchists, anti-capitalists, anti-authoritarians and activists this is a call for a Portland Black Bloc on Mayday at the North Park Blocks. At high noon speakers until 2pm then we take the streets!
We only need to look back at previous Mayday actions to know that more militant action is needed. Come with your masks, sticks, flags, shields, slingshots, body armor, rock, paint, and anything else you feel is necessary.
Support Your Local Black Bloc!
