A merry day!

May Day greetings to all radical nationalists and anti-globalists. As Mother Nature steps up a gear, it's worth remembering that today is a remarkable day  - it stretches back through humanity's folk memories and intertwines through our histories and cultures.  So greetings and all good wishes to all peoples and tribes of the world. May Day is our day. We mark and celebrate it differently and all through our glorious diversity.

It's interesting and comforting to know that May Day throughout the world has resisted corporate commodification. It remains a spontaneous and joyous celebration of all the folk of the planet and the multinationals and globalisers are unable to capture May Day and sell it back to us. Long may that remain so!

May Day is of and for all of us. It manifests itself and evolves organically through folklores and we express it depending on our own particular historic ritual.
