Yesterday was May Day

I was so busy NOT working yesterday, May 1st, which is commemorated worldwide as the "International Day of Worker's Struggle," that I didn't bother to come online to remind you about it.

Okay, it's the day after, but why not: here's the link to Rosa Luxemburg's spirited essay "The Idea of May Day on the March." One line from this piece (circa 1913) bears highlighting, given our current world situation:

"In this moment of armament lunacy and war orgies, only the resolute will to struggle of the working masses, their capacity and readiness for powerful mass actions, can maintain world peace and push away the menacing world conflagration."
