May Day Directory: Occupy General Strike In Over 115 Cities


May Day Directory: Occupy General Strike In Over 115 Cities


While American corporate media has focused on yet another stale election between Wall Street-financed candidates, Occupy has been organizing something extraordinary: the first truly nationwide General Strike in U.S. history. Building on the international celebration of May Day, past General Strikes in U.S. cities like Seattle and Oakland, and the recent May 1st Day Without An Immigrant demonstrations, the Occupy Movement has called for A Day Without the 99% on May 1st, 2012. This in and of itself is a tremendous victory. For the first time, workers, students, immigrants, and the unemployed in over 115 U.S. cities will stand together for economic justice.

See below the cut for what we believe to be the most comprehensive list of cities where Occupy May Day events are being planned, as well as other resources. Note: This is a living document.
