May Day 2012


General Strike Match by Molly Crabapple

On May 1st, 2012, we are creating a new kind of holiday – A People’s Holiday – One that’s not just yet another flavor of consumerism, but is explicitly about imagining a world beyond consumerism. We ask you to do one of two things to commemorate this day.

  • Don’t like what you do? Don’t do it. Take one day to do something you love, instead.
  • Love what you do? Do it for free. Take it to the next level, and bring it to the public.

This is what it means to strike today. Join us, as we imagine another way of living.
