MayDay

What could possibly bring together Democratic Candidate for Congress and the Latin Kings? What else but the May 1 Immigrant General Strike? Now, I do support all peaceful political action, and I support many of the causes of the current anti-anti-immigration movement forming in the US (ok it probably has a better name than that but it's late and I have work in the morning), but ya gotta find that a little hilarious. Other supporters include plenty of communists and socialists (like they do), plus Four Women, Kanadian Posi Kids (what does Canada have to do with this?), Liars of America, and my favorite, Brooklyn's own Church of Stop Shopping (can true Anarchists go on strike? Like, the ones already living outside the capitalist system... How do they strike, try to trade stocks for the day?).

That said, how cool would a general immigrant strike be? In the US, not that uppity France over there. As a first-generation American on one side, should I take a long lunch or something? I'll have to try to not be too protested out after A29.
