    THE ORIGINS OF MAYDAY - From Christian Manipulation to US Terrorism

  • Though it is celebrated as a public holiday in most countries worldwide (ironically not in USA - read on to find out what the irony is) MayDay was originally a Pagan festival celebrating the coming of summer. It was "stolen" by the ruling authorities of the time (Rome) to become the Christian "Easter". A similar disempowering of the people by "the authorities" resulted in Christmas also. The Christian myth is exposed on the web here and here.

    Matt Groening (creator of "The Simpsons") often tells kids what school teachers won't:

    "[a] point I make over and over is that the authorities don't always have your best interest in mind".

    And again in another interview with Wired magazine, "...he keeps pushing one message: The authorities don't have your best interests at heart."

    How many of us were told by our so-called school "teachers" about the USA government murders that stem from that day? An excerpt from reveals...

    In 1887 four Chicago anarchists were executed. A fifth cheated the hangman by killing himself in prison. Three more were to spend 6 years in prison until pardoned by Governor Altgeld who said the trial that convicted them was characterised by "hysteria, packed juries and a biased judge". The state had, in the words of the prosecution put "Anarchy .. on trial" and hoped their deaths would also be the death of the anarchist idea.

    The anarchists were trade union organisers and May Day became an international workers day to remember their sacrifice. They were framed on false charges of throwing a bomb at police breaking up a demonstration in Chicago. This was part of a strike demanding an 8 hour day involving 400,000 workers in Chicago that started May 1st 1886.

    So you see, "the authorities" are still lying, as is detailed at where it is noted that By covering up the history of May Day, the state, business, mainstream unions and the media have covered up an entire legacy of dissent.

    GET "bent not crooked" AT VENUS PARK

    We all need to escape from the rat race occassionaly. On the Thai island of "Koh Tao", May 1st, 2003 in the "Twisted Valley" of Venus Park DJ Octo and DJ sqgl will be exploring the struggles of the human spirit with hip-hop, spoken-word, experimental ambience, dark grooves, and irreverent, fun insanity. Hopefully party-goers will be inspired to get active and subvert "the system" (aka "The Matrix"?) when they return home. You've got to fight for your right to party... and breathe... and drink fresh water. Corporations and governments do not have our best interests in mind. Say No to the WTO.
