#MayDay – Occupy General Strike – May 1st

ON MAY 1, 2012

Millions of people throughout the world — workers, students, immigrants, professionals, houseworkers — employed and unemployed alike — will take to the streets to unite in a General Strike against a system that does not work for us.

Don’t go to work. Don’t go to school. Don’t shop. Take the streets!


-5PM: Meet at the Zeebo for singing and potluck.  Doug and Dave are preparing songbooks and tuning their guitars!

-5:30PM: “May Day!  Reclaiming Our History” – talk by Occupy historian Michael Snell-Feikema

-6:00PM: Protest march around Court Square – we’ll stop by Bank of America with our “Battle of Jericho” horns and kazoos to bring down those walls being propped up by taxpayer bailouts.

-6:30PM: We’ll read our Declaration and Vision Statement on the steps of the Court House.  Then we’ll have open people’s mic.

-7:00PM:  Occupy Harrisonburg General Assembly

On May 1st, 2012, we are creating a new kind of holiday – A People’s Holiday – one that’s not just another flavor of consumerism, but which invites us to image a world beyond consumerism.

We ask you to do one of two things to commemorate this day:

    • Don’t like what you do? Don’t do it. Take one day to do something you love instead.
    • Love what you do? Do it for free. Take it to the next level and bring it to the public.  -NYC General Assembly website
