Mayday Mayhem Masquerade March,
Freedom Shop, 272 Cuba Street, Wellington.
Date: Thursday 1st May 2003
Time: Midday
Wellington Mayday 2003 website http://aotearoa.wellington.net.nz/mayday/
> Wellingtons anti-capitalist all sorts will be meeting again in the spirit of
Peoples Global Action www.agp.org and invites you to celebrate Mayday this
year with a carnival/protest against capitalism, highlighting the
connections between the current war in Iraq and capitalism. Mayday Mayhem
Masquerade March is the theme of this year's participatory street
carnival/protest that will celebrate our resistance to the capitalist war
machine. With costumes, music, free food and
festivities, the march will draw attention to the industries that will
benefit directly from the atrocities committed on the people of Iraq, all in
the name of "democracy".

The history of workers resistance on May 1st stems from a massive strike
across the US in 1886. Demanding an eight-hour working day, six workers were
killed, and four innocent men, known as the Haymarket Martyrs, were hanged.
Since then, in memory and in spirit of the Haymarket Martyrs, worker's
organizations across the world have celebrated May 1st as a global day of
resistance against the exploits of capitalism.

With masks, costumes and pots in hands the carnival will congregate at the
Freedom shop, where Food not Bombs will provide free food and local
musicians will play. We will then be heading down Cuba Street to Civic Sq.,
before heading off to a range of undisclosed locations.

Our purpose is to make as much noise and be as colourful as possible, so
bring pots, pans and put on your best britches. This is our celebration for
all the workers of the world. It is a time to unite our voices against the
continuing injustice we suffer under capitalism.
