According to that Gregorian calendar, Earth Day and May Day are nearing again this time of year. And what can I say about these days and times except help save planet mother earth. And I thought to repost that Greenpeace polar bear video and even an excerpt from last years Earth Day posting that I blah blogged about because I am starting to realize as a blogaholic that these days, times and years sometimes repeat themselves:
The earth is on fire. Planet mother earth is dying. It is being pillaged and plundered. Antarctica is disappearing. The polar bears are floating away on ice. The bees are dying, the bats are disappearing, the frogs are disappearing, wheat is disappearing, the price of oil is going up along with the economy going down or up, the population is population, Global warming, the greenhouse effect, Babylon on fire, overpollution, overpopulation, overoilism, overconsumerism, overcapitalism, overeverything. Here is a Hopi Indian Prophecy: There will come a time when the Earth grows sick and when it does a tribe will gather from all the cultures of the world who believe in deed and not words. They will work to heal it...they will be known as the "Warriors of the Rainbow". Go Green, it's the newest thing. Let us shine together to make our earth more beautiful.
And in other thoughts May Day is nearing also. And what is May Day, isn't' that that workers of the world unite holiday. And from what I can remember, there are usually a lot of events held throughout the world to coincide with these days. And here are some of them that I thought to repost:
Information is strength, knowledge is power. Workers of the world unite.
Blackkat will have its annual Blackkat Mayday party. Blackkat organized the first annual Squatter Mayday parties fifteen years ago at Tompkins Square Park. These days squatters have been thrown out and bought out and squatting no longer exists on the Lower East Side which is now called the East Village for real estate marketing purposes maybe, so the most recent mayday parties are of the rave scene.
The 10th Annual Blackkat Mayday 2008. Sunday April 27th, Tompkins Square Park. Free.
Featuring : Grandmaster Caz,Lenny Dee and more. With the Blackkat crew : Jason Bk,Arrow Chrome,The Eye, Dennis the Menance. The Hungry March Band and special guests. With live silkscreening and artwork by Peripheral Media Projects.
We invite any and all local and global activist groups to bring a table, flyers, sign up sheets, and banners to set up a booth at the event—please contact us if interested.
And then there is an Earth Day New York whose title seems as if it should have something to do with Earth Day. And there is also the Global Marijuana March as well. And then there is an email titled " Longshoremen to close ports on West Coast May 1st to protest". And I imagine there are many, many, many more of these protests and events to be found on this day, though I am not exactly sure where they are. Here's wishing you a Happy Earth And May Day. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind.
