Tue Apr 27 2004Bay Area Celebrates MayDay 2004
MayDay is celebrated on May 1st all around the world. In many countries, International Workers' Day is observed on that day. Beltane is a pagan holiday that celebrates the coming of spring. The bloody fight for the 8-hour workday, including the martyrdom of several anarchist organizers in 1886, led to the rescheduling of the official workers' day in the United States to Labor Day (the first Monday in September). May 1st is still observed as International Workers' Day in many countries and political spheres around the world.
May Day by the Bay
May Day 2004: People Organizing to Win Employment Rights(POWER), Chinese Progressive Association, the Day Labor Program of San Francisco, and other grassroots community groups came together in an inspirational show of unity and power to celebrate May Day and international worker's rights. Demands were made to end the U.S. occupation of Iraq, to stop intervention in Haiti, and to respect immigrant and worker's rights. Targets included the Disney Corporation and Levis. Photos
Out of the Cubicles, Into the Streets! - About 50 people converged on Yerba Buena Gardens to celebrate May Day by starting a street party in front of the Sony Metreon. They called for people to leave the spectacle of commerce and consumption behind so they could create their own adventures and fun in the streets of San Francisco, instead of watching actors doing so on the big screens in the Metreon. Four people were arrested by SFPD for various alleged offenses committed while dancing in the streets.
