May Day: Links for Long Island occupiers

Many of our Long Island activist friends will be going into New York City for Occupy May Day on Tuesday, May 1st. Check around with friends from Suffolk Peace Network, or other activist groups, to see if you can find some friends to take the train in with.

Some of us (because of time, money, energy, and/or inclination) will be staying on Long Island to make our stand for peace, justice and The 99%.

Here are some links for Long Islanders who want to Occupy May Day:

The OccupyWallSt website says this morning 5/1, that,
due to the weather, things are still ON, but…
“If you can only make one event, try to come to the
(permitted) Solidarity March leaving
from Union Square at 5:30pm ET!”

A May Day/Tearwater Tea Party
in Mt. Sinai, Long Island
For reflecting on the injustices in the world.

May Day
Tearwater Tea Party

We are so pleased that folks all around the country and the world are
celebrating May Day as a nationwide “Occupy” event, and a General Strike.
It makes sense that if we want the 1% to play fair, pay their share, and end the wars,
that we tell them NO by refusing (for at least this one day)
to work in this unjust system they have created.

We would like to take the May Day message to our neighbors.

Please come to a May Day/Tearwater Tea Party
hosted by Lauren, Kimberly and friends

Purpose: For neighbors, friends, and families to come together
to reflect on the injustices in the world. And, to hope and plan for better conditions for the 99%.
