Mayday Mayhem Masquerade March,
Freedom Shop, 272 Cuba Street, Wellington.
Time: Midday - Date: Thursday 1st May 2003
Mayday Mayhem Masquerade March is the theme of this year's Mayday. A
diverse group of people are expected to participate in a colourful street
party starting at 12pm in Upper Cuba Street, outside the Freedom Shop.
The day will be a celebration to of our resistance to global capital and war.
With costumes, music, free food and festivities, the day progresses with a
march towards Civic Square (arriving at 2pm). The march will then proceed
from Civic Square with demonstrations at a number of undisclosed locations.

Mayday began in 1886 when there were massive industrial strikes across the
US. During the strikes six workers were killed, and four innocent men,
known as the Haymarket Martyrs, were hanged. Since this time worker's across
the world have united in solidarity to celebrate May 1st as International
Workers Day. This tradition continues today with anti-globalisation actions
worldwide which expose the links between global capital, exploitation and
oppression of people and the environment.

The focus of the day is to draw attention to the industries that are
benefiting directly from the War on Iraq and the hypocrisy of the nations,
governments and corporations waging it. As well as this the spirit will be
one of general opposition to all forms of corporate exploitation and global

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.

becomming a tradition and celebration for those
embracing autonomous, decentralised ways of
organising - allowing us to step outside of the
capitalist matrix.
