Democracy in the United States Of America has endured for over 234 years. It is a tradition and a heritage that we all cherish, but have come to take for granted. That heritage, it is now starkly apparent, is in the deepest jeopardy.

A combination of untra-powerful, consolidated, financial and mercantile forces has now arisen, threatening the end of American Democracy forever, and so a new call has also arisen. It has arisen from the Paul Revere's of a new era, who once again sound the alarm for the defense of our great nation and it's institutions of freedom.

On May 1 2012 all patriotic Americans are summoned to set aside their routine duties, however pressing they may be; to set aside their jobs and take to the streets to once again hold high the old banner of liberty!

The time for silence is over. The time for apathy is over. The threat to our society is real and grave. Our freedoms and our national inheritance hangs in the balance, and with them the freedom and democratic inheritance of the Western World.

The time has come for all those who hold these values dear to set aside for one day the responsibility of earning a living, for the greater responsibility of a future that is worth living for.

A new generation of Paul Reveres are sounding the alarm, not from horseback but with the great power of the communication age! By May 1st everyone in America will have heard that call.

On this day the United States must shut down and come to a halt in order to ensure it's future. The call of this new generation of patriots must be headed, and not ignored, and those who turn a deaf ear will do so to their eternal shame!

The warning has sounded and the word will spread like wildfire! Heed that call, or never complain again about the future of decline and suffering that is clearly forcast in the rise of a new class of self appointed and ruthless kings.

I don't live in the US, could you explain what's happening on May 1st?

Occupy Wall Street has called for a national strike on May 1st, accompanied by a general day of protests and street actions to show those in power we are serious about taking government back for the people. It is an action of the utmost seriousness, and EVERYONE must help to spread that word.

Hmm... Not going to lie, I don't have a lot of confidence that this is going to work. I feel like they build up hype to things like this and then nothing happens, but I'm no expert on these things and it could be a complete success. I wish y'all the best:)

You are right that there has been a problem in the past with sporadic and inadaquately planned actions. These have been to some degree successful, and a lot better than nothing. But May 1st is different. This has been in the works for months, and we have been doing everything in our power to spread the word. I think May Day will go down in history.
