May Day Loner

May Day Loner

FIVE COLLEGES, MA–This area of Western Massachusetts, usually a hotbed of progressive activity, has no May Day events (other than an evening theater piece) taking place. Maybe so many activists have gone to NYC, Boston, Worcester or Pittsfield that no one was left to organize anything locally. Let’s hope so.

In any case, feeling pretty stupid sitting in front of this keyboard watching Occupy May Day go down elsewhere, I decided instead to dig out some really ancient plaques buried under a decade of crap and put them to good use. Fortuitously, they spelled out in large letters: “May Day! Corporate siege of planet!!” (They were also waterproof.)

I then drove them to an overpass on I-91 where the state had cleverly installed chain link fencing in front of the bridge’s original rails (making an ideal plaque holder!) and installed them for both north and southbound motorists to ponder (did I mention the plaques were day glow yellow?)

OK, OK, so it’s not exactly the Brooklyn Bridge action, right? But, you can do something, even if you’re on your own.

    Good job! Every drop counts. Some one saw it and mentioned it to someone else who said – yeah I heard something, bout time someone spoke the truth, etc., etc.

    The thing with posters is you never know who has seen it and what impact it made. Ya just gotta have faith.

    You did the right thing.
