It's about darn time! So where's Faux news? I have not heard any mention about this on FOX, I wonder if ol' Hannity or Beck are going to report on this march by 53 of America's largest Unions. My guess is that they won't!

I will be watching closely, it's time to show our solidarity with the few American workers left!

Thank you corporate America for shipping our jobs to China, pillaging the poor, and destroying our once glorious cities in the 'rust belt'! It's time we show these sorry peices of s**t who is the boss in America, and it darn sure is not their sorry arses! Not anymore!

Let's give a big round of applause to Dylan Ratigan, Ed Schultz, Michael Moore, Markos Moulitsas, Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow!

Yes I am sure the Blue shirts will be out in force. I wonder if the unions got any stimulus funds to create these marches?

Hmmmm. There is a conspiracy for ya.

If so it's a bailout I can finally support! We should have had a public works program like FDR created instead of bailing out the tbtf.

Pretty close to Labor Day too, (do you guys celebrate Labor Day on May 1st?).

I'd go, but I live on a different continent.

I saw Moore on Larry King last night, wasn't too bad - hes not very confident in himself and the way he speaks tho.

No it's the first monday in September I believe. The reason for that was back in the early 20th century the government was too afraid that having it on May 1 would allow for an international socialist solidarity movement to affect the US. They did not want any international influences so they decided to weaken labor day by making it later in the year.

Why don't you attend your own May 1st protest, in most European cities with a sizeable population they have pretty strong protests and even riots.

It's too bad this will get framed as "leftist" so the power of people who have been harmed by Wall Street but culturally identify on the right will not be stimulated by this and may even be turned against it.

In the same way, the tea party movement has become to be labeled "right wing," and thus people who identify with the left see them as an evil force of bigotry and so on.

In reality, the people who will be marching on Wall Street and the Tea Partiers have the same reasons to be angry with the big Wall Street banks who have sucked them both dry, and the two groups should be standing together outside Goldman Sachs headquarters shouting together as loud as they can. However, the stupid punch-and-judy show of right-versus-left will keep the people of America divided and so neither grass-root movement has any hope of impacting actual change that would benefit its memebers.

So what if he's not the most polished public speaker? He is all about action, not platitudes. I much prefer his actions than the long legged mack daddy's teleprompter-reading skills!!!

I always do - all the different unions always lead the march, and I usually hang around the back with all the anarchists and communists
- we get the most applause 'cause we're last in the line.

I don't wanna derail the thread - but changing May/Labor day is stupid. America does that kind of thing so often, you guys drive on a different side of the road than almost everyone else, one of the only countries that hasn't adopted the metric system fully , way bigger meals in restaurants etc etc.

No offense to Americans, but I feel like its done purposely to you guys to make you feel detached from the rest of the world - and I don't mean to be rude, but generally speaking you are. ATS members excluded ofcourse
........ Well most of them....


Sorry to derail - as you were.

I 100% agree with you. I think America has developed their own way seperate from the rest of the world. It's alot like North Korea, except our government being involved with everything on earth. I know in most other countries May Day is the day that all of the humane and rational people come out of hiding to protest! We are so heated up by that time that we usually riot!


I wish I could attend the March on Wall Street, my hope and dare I say prayers(if there is a god) that they storm Wall Street. Maybe break some windows, tip over cars, through bricks, fight police, light corporations on fire, etc..... That would be a welcome sight!
