At MTV, of all places, it’s noted that “If you happen to be an anarchist, you probably observe May Day, which commemorates a number of historical revolts worldwide and is also known as International Workers’ Day”. So thank your mother for the rabbits, thank you Marta for the sandwiches(!), thank you aketus for hosting slackbastard on anarchobase — for one year now — and happy May Day to all my comrades in Barricade, in Melbourne, Australia, and to those around the world, especially to the comrades in Sofia, Bulgaria, Berlin, Germany and Istanbul, Turkey.
“IF YOU CANNONADE US
we shall dynamite you.” You laugh! Perhaps you think, “You’ll throw no more bombs;” but let me assure you that I die happy on the gallows, so confident am I that the hundreds and thousands to whom I have spoken will remember my words; and when you shall have hanged us, then, mark my words, they will do the bomb-throwing! In this hope do I say to you: “I despise you. I despise your order; your laws; your force-propped authority.” HANG ME FOR IT!
