May Day 2001 Explodes Around the World
May Day 2001 Explodes Around the World
As San Franciscans prepare for a Reclaim the Streets party and protest starting tonight at 5:30pm (Justin Herman Plaza), May Day celebrations worldwide are shaking the foundations of the corporation-state. May Day is a historical holiday for anarchist resistance and worker power. This year, intense militarization by police and corporate media in Europe against May Day has guaranteed a police riot during the celebrations. Reports are coming in from around the world about actions and celebrations that took place today:
  • A wildcat strike took place in Indiana
  • Massive protests and police repression in London
  • Militants in New Zealand marched around Wellington, shutting down multinational offices
  • In Australia, the Sydney Stock Exchange was protested
  • Recent militant protests against Dae Woo Motors brought 20,000 protesters in Korea out on May Day 2001
  • There is video coverage of Global Action Day (May 1) in Berlin
  • Actions happened in Melbourne, Australia
  • A May Day action in solidarity with Quebec City prisoners was held in Montreal
  • A massive general strike brought business-as-usual to a close in Greece today as tens of thousands didn't go to work
  • In Chicago, solidarity actions for May Day and Quebec City prisoners were held
  • A Reclaim the Streets was held in Pittsburgh
  • Marxists held a rally in Sri Lanka
  • Sketchy details of arrests in Vancouver are coming in
Reports from tonight's May Day in SF will be online tonight. In the meantime, there are details from Saturday's Reclaim May Day party.
