aside from the obvious fact that all 800 some odd protesters arrested should be released immediately and on charges dropped I'm going to focus on the RNC 8. Eight members of the welcoming committee who are being charged with terrorism.

I have said it before and I say it here again. Every day that goes by brings us closer and closer to a true police state. We find ourselves now in a situation reminiscent of the May Day massacre several decades ago. Where people who were either not present or not able to carry out the attack were charged and convicted of the murders of police officers killed when a bomb was thrown.

These are the times we find ourselves in.

When to utter the word anarchist is to be immediately looked down upon by even the so called liberals as condemnable. Blamable.

We will not be blamed. We as a whole will not be blamed because we didn't do anything wrong. As an anarchist I call for non-violence in all but the most harrowing of situations. Of course if a police officer is about to kill somebody I think someone ought to step in but short of those circumstances individual acts of violence are to be frowned upon.

Those arrested committed no acts of violence.

They weren't there.

This is our May Day.

One of those arrested was tortured with tasings, beatings, and chemical weapons for asking for food as he had not eaten in over 12 hours.

This is how the police in our country deal with dissent.

One of the few industrial countries to officially sanction the use of torture.

This is our May Day

These injustices are being ignored by the media at large.

These problems don't fit neatly into there sound bytes about how everything is ok except everything's not ok and make sure your scared enough to wave the flag.

And sing the anthems.

And call for victory in the war on a definition and a word.

'I declare war on ignorance, let's occupy the senate!'

This can't be won.

It's not meant to be won.

It's hardly able to be called a war because in a war two armies or more fight each other.

Not one army and a world of civilians.

This is our May Day.

It's getting to be about that time.

Revolution never felt so close.

Unwarranted violence is never ok.

But when it's to defend yourselves no man or woman or child should be able to stand in your way.

I defend myself today

This is my May Day

Peace and Unity
