Make MAY DAY 2010 Our Day


Since September 2008 the U.S. government has poured $4.6 trillion of taxpayer money into the private economy to keep America ’s largest banks and other large businesses afloat. This government bailout has fueled a stock market boom and a surge in banking profits alongside a spike in unemployment, mortgage foreclo-sures, and homelessness. Washington and Baton Rouge are attempting to shrink the huge deficit created by the Wall Street bailout by pursuing drastic cutbacks and wholesale privatization of public employment, housing, healthcare, and education. May Day 2010 is a springboard for building a working class alternative to the es-tablishment’s (non)solutions for the ongoing economic crisis.
