The May Day Celebration is not a celebration of a political party or ideology. It is the celebration of a new culture; one which is peaceful, just, sustainable, horizontal and tolerant of difference. The music, entertainment, poetry, theatre and conversations that happen at May Day are a microcosm of that new culture being formed “within the shell of the old.” Our celebrations create an atmosphere of extreme freedom and tolerance, an environment where people of every imaginable background and intersection of oppression are not only welcome, but empowered to participate and share.
