MAY DAY ANTI-CAPITALIST MARCH

Every May 1st for the past 122 years anti-capitalists have commemorated the anarchists martyrs of Haymarket Square, as well as untold others who have since fallen in the struggle, by orchestrating direct actions against the ruling class. With general strikes now being called in cities across the US, May Day 2012 is looking to be the most eventful day of action since the labor movements of the pre-WWII era.
As our contribution to this monumental May Day we in New Orleans are organizing a march against capitalism. From anti-police brutality organizing and gentrification resistance, to defense of the Gulf Coast and the park occupations against financial capitalism, we take the streets for all the causes that seek our liberation from capitalist oppression. We encourage everyone to come out with banner, chants, noise makers and a passion for freedom.
The anti-capitalist march will begin after the May Day Labor March for worker's rights, which we also strongly encourage everyone to attend. The exact meeting time and place of both marches are coming soon. Stay tuned to Nola Indymedia and Nola Anarcha for updates.
