A friendly reminder from Notes From Underground

Today's May Day.

If you're curious about the origins of May Day, read here. It may well be the most ancient religious festival worldwide - primarily a homage to fertility goddesses as well as the renewal of life that we see in the spring time.

In more modern times, May Day is significant as the original labor day, and is tied with the struggle by organized labor movements to get the 8-hour work day that many of us take for granted recognized.

And of course, it is also the day of the Great American Boycott 2007, an event that some of my amigos are covering (e.g., here, here, and here).

Turns out that it's Nezua's first blogversary, so go over there and say hey!

¡En solidaridad!
