May Day

WordPress can bite my ass. They have eaten TWO posts now on May Day.

grrr.

Edited to add: A photo from a  US immigration rally on this May Day (from BBC):

Edited to add: y’all should go over to brownfemipower’s for the amazing series on Our History of Protest she’s got going on, and to Sylvia’s to check out Iraqi Communists celebrating May Day.

Some May Day images for your International Workers Day holiday…oh wait, the US doesn’t have May Day as a holiday (facists!)

  1. Oh, turtlebella, your May Day and mine are so totally different. Mine consists of chocolate and flowers… (Wait, doesn’t that sound eerily like Valentine’s Day?)

    Still, I can see where you’re going with this. :)

  2. Wah–we had no May Day celebrations…but I’ve been listening to lots of coverage on the rallies, etc. on NPR. I tried to think about how we could do a maypole dance here but it’s in the 90s and the kids are under the weather…

  3. Happy May Day!
    I’ve learned to always copy my post before hitting “save” in WordPress. It has saved me a few times.

  4. i’m trying out ModX. so far it’s been alright. but i uploaded an robottxt file and nada yet.

    urls are readable but id better see results soon or im dumping it.

  5. “Some May Day images for your International Workers Day holiday…oh wait, the US doesn’t have May Day as a holiday (facists!)”
