Are you interested in creating a sustainable, egalitarian, inclusive society? So are we! In accordance with the global revolts and the fresh resistance here in the United States — particularly here in Bloomington — we invite you to attend and plan for Mayday 2012. On May 1st, we call on all of Bloomington to celebrate Mayday 2012 with a General Strike, in the spirit of resistance against capitalist exploitation and state oppression.

Are you a worker, schemer, dreamer, artist, unemployed, funemployed trouble maker? Getting involved is more than just going to a meeting. Its building a new culture of resistance in Bloomington; expect teach ins, meals, actions, occupations, theater, art installations, parades, critical mass bike rides, and a roving dance party as well as sneak peaks into a post-revolutionary Bloomington. These events will be presented in a “Tour of Resistance” style, with a map listing times and places to follow throughout the day.

E-mail with a brief description of your project, the time and location you’ll present it, and any questions you might have, and any help you might need. So far, groups such as Food Not Bombs, DMC Street Theater Troupe, Revolutionary Cinema Cooperative, Occupy Bloomington, Occupy IU, Bloomington Really Really Free Market, May Day Artists Guild, T.W.F. Scraps, HARM have expressed that they will be participating in the day’s festivities.

Last scheming meeting for May Day will be April 29th from 3-5 at MCPL in room 1A.
