Happy May Day!

May 1, 2006 § Leave a comment

In celebration of International Workers Day, this excellent NPR feature on the Haymarket Riot of 1886, which was, incidentally, inspired by the Canadian labour movement.

Also, an interesting Village Voice piece on today’s Great American Boycott, a remarkable grassroots response to the anti-immigration policies currently being considered by the US Congress. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on CNN today.
