The Electronic Disturbance Theater and the borderlands Hacklab call for 
a virtual strike in solidarity with the May 1st General Strike /
/ Boycott in the US and actions for Freedom of Movement taking place
over Europe on May 1st, 2006.

Information control is a critical part of the control of people's 
movement and the information dissemination engines such as CNN are used 
to propagate racist propaganda from the mouths of Lou Dobbs, Tom 
Tancredo and Sensenbrenner every day. Racists like the Minutemen, with 
known ties to neo-Nazi groups, have become an everyday fixture in the
media landscape. With this virtual strike, we will join the millions 
marching in the US, Mexico and Europe in slowing down the economy by 
slowing down the information systems.

On this day without an immigrant, we will also have a day without Lou 
Dobbs, Semsenbrenner and the Minutemen in cyberspace. Join us in making 
this a reality.

This virtual strike is also made in solidarity with La Otra Campana of 
the Zapatistas, who are marching to the US consulate in Mexico City as 
part of their campaign to overthrow the evil governments of the world
building community power from below and from the left.

May 1st has been celebrated for more than a century as International 
Workers Day, commemorating the struggle for the eight hour workday in 
the US and the state murder of anarchist labor organizers in Chicago in 
1887. The militant labor movement in Chicago was largely due to the 
influence of radical immigrant workers from central Europe, who were
most exploited of the working class. Today we reclaim May Day as a day 
for migrant people everywhere.

Against HR4437 and for amnesty for all! For a world free of
and detention centers! For Freedom of Movement and the Right to Stay! 
For a world free of borders! For a world free of racist immigration 
controls! For a world free of neo-liberalism and capitalism! For a
where many worlds fit!

Join the Virtual Sit-In, May 1st, 2006 and help make the massive mayday
strike/walkout/boycott be felt throughout cyberspace.
