MAYDAY 2007 – Suited and Booted.

We want to relaunch the Mayday protests with a new spirit and new tactics.

<b>Why are we protesting on Mayday?</b>
Because our current system is unsustainable and the chase for corporate 
profit is ruining our lives and our planet. The Haymarket Martyrs died 
in 1886 protesting for an eight hour day, a 9-5. When was the last time 
anyone worked one of those? Climate change is coming whether we like it 
or not, business is going to have to change and people are going to have 
to learn to share. We need to take back control of our lives and we are 
going to have to turn the social rules upside down.

The press, police and government have been able to scare off, contain 
and criminalise, us and our tactics with increasing efficiency, since 
Mayday was switched from a simple A-B workers march. This has caused the 
protests on Mayday to gradually dwindle in numbers and vibrancy over the 
last few years, culminating in a return to state authorised marching 
last year.

We have decided to see if we can inject a bit of life into this 
dwindling day of protest and celebration, we don’t want to march from A-B.
