May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

in

Tomorrow (May 1st) is International Workers Day, otherwise known as May Day. May Day was first marked to commemorate the May 1886 Haymarket Massacre in Chicago, USA, when the police shot dead many striking workers.

Since then every May 1st workers, unionists and leftist political activists have held marches to celebrate workers' struggles for jusice and equality around the World.

Tomorrow's march in Auckland starts at 5:30pm at Britomart (bottom of Queen Street).

A number of trade unions and left groups will be taking part.

Socialist Aotearoa will be marching to demand full equality for migrant workers, higher wages and lower prices and solidarity with the oppressed people of Palestine and Tamil Eelam.

I can't tell you how excited I am to find much of the trash of society in one place. It will be like shooting fish in a barrel for the police. I for one will be sure to record the event, so I can relax and watch over and over again the entertainment over a nice bowl of popcorn.

Who says reality TV is boring?

Re: Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

MOhahaha is troll for paranoid apathy

Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

why don't the indy ed's just delete the repeated comment?...they are clearly abusive.

Re: Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

Because Indy likes to believe it's a place for 'free speech' and if you start censoring speech then you become as bad as the big evil governments.

Oh, wait a minute, I've had comments deleted before. Funny that.

Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

There are a couple of trolls that have been dogging the replies on many threads. Since they are clearly ring wing, ignorant and retarded, I say let their replies stand as they are doing a great disservice to their other right wing comrades, dumming down the right to Bushian proportions...like the first comment in this press release.

Re: Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

I am happy to admit to being one of those trolls. I really didn't think anyone cared enough to write anything about me. Thank you. Thank you.

Re: Re: Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

Nothing more depressing than to come in contact with a proud retard.

Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

"ring wing" was supposed to be "right wing"

Re: Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

And you called us stupid, fucktard.

I'm not right wing. I just have my own views, which don't seem to mesh well with hippies who think governments are all bad.

Re: Re: Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

Yeah I call you stupid, and in your case, a fuckin parrot too. Why are your views the same as the states views? Thats not called having a view thats called being a fuckin polly wanna cracker parrot mate.

Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

Jeez, these comments are almost maturing up from infantile to childish. Quickly Dora The Explorer is on, turn off that computer and go sit in front of the tv children.

Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

do you not recall it was an activist that threw a bomb at the police which in turn initiated the riot?!

Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

"the trash of society"
There will be doctors, nurses and teachers there. People who will hang onto their jobs during the coming Depression, unlike you.

Re: Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

I'm a hedge fund trader. The depression is my bread and butter. I will make a fortune off you plebs by selling all your companies short.

Re: Re: Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

I can't blame you for making profits, although I don't understand why people keep selling things to the short, why are they more likely to buy bad shares? Anyway, I blame all the hedges on Bush, the two seem too closely related to be a coincidence. Like how he paid those Indians to fly planes into those towers in washington.

Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

Well my comment was deleted for some reason (whilst a whole load of shit is allowed to stay up..weird...but as I said the first time.. when is calling someone "retarded" ok? By doing so you are stooping to their level and I also think your comment should be deleted. I find it offensive.
Ms super pc.

Re: Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

Stop whinging righty.

Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

Comments here tell you all about the mindset of so many sickos in NZ in 2009! It is truly a lost place, no room for intelligent debate or even insight into the greater picture. Dumb, dumber the dumbest! I hope a tsunami will soon wipe all this retarded lot out, so the country can be re-settled by more intelligent beings - perhaps even with a bit of "culture"???!

Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

Nothing wrong with workers rights, but when In see it in context with Palestine & Tamil Eelam - time to run up the red flag -idiots

Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

Why don't you right wing fascist trolls piss off back to your own homepage. Here it is for you so you don't have to use your keyboard to type it.

focus on something you can actually acheive, like drug legalisation

Re: May Day March Tomorrow in Auckland

i have done a bit of cut and pasting hea because i feel its relevant,
if people respond to so called trolls and or abusive people with the same sentiment then your basically on the same level..
sure it may be a bit time consuming but if you stick to the threads topics then we won't see so many of these threads descent into a shit fight,
seems as though theres people who know better getting sucked in...

in general i've noticed a real lack of genuine good debate up hea,

back to the actual topic though..

the challenge i see in any public demonstrations is to propose solutions in a positive accessible way.
many demos and protest sway towards straight up negativity and anger, yep of course we first need to be aware of what is really happening in our communities, cities, countries, our world on the whole, we must understand why we have a world with murder death starvation exploitation and all the dark shit out thea, butrely we must also propose solutions

when was the last time anyone heard of a large demo which was all about sharing the alternatives the solutions, a literal demonstration of tried alternative sustainable living solutions,

i feel it would be a refreshing change from the anti anti anti anti protest against vibe thats been prominent amongst many activists and socially conscious beings,
