Let's face it, in the U.S. May Day has been a non-starter for a long time. Go to Europe and people take the day off work, attend speeches, march in parades. But Occupy Wall Street is looking to bring a little Old World labor spirit to the U.S.

Occupy Eugene Calls for General Strike Tuesday, May 1st
In solidarity with Occupy May Day General Strike we, Occupy Eugene, are gathering together May 1st to stand up against injustices, imbalances, and corruption brought about by corporate greed and the 1% who benefit from the massive system of oppression facing this and future generations. On May Day, we are asking everyone to stand in solidarity and not go to work or school! This is a call-out to gather in the streets alongside members of Occupy Eugene to send YOUR message to our favorite banks: Bank of America, Chase, and Wells Fargo. There will be a rally at Occupy V 1274 W. 7th Ave (7th & Polk) at 10am on May 1, starting with a peacekeeping training before we hit the streets! For more information, go to:
