Happy May Day!

It's May 1st, the day of worker solidarity around the world, and around the world people have been marching. There are some fine pictures here.

I'll just borrow this one for illustrative purposes.

The people's flag is indeed deepest red. I've always been bemused by the way the US has managed to entirely wipe out the memory of May Day (and moved Labor Day to the other end of the year), and also managed to make the word "red" mean right-wing instead of socialist. It's an impressive feat of brainwashing, but luckily the rest of the planet doesn't seem to have been affected.
