ANTI-CAPITALIST MAY DAY 2012
demonstration to mark the International Workers’ Day
May 1, 2012, 4PM
Champ-de-Mars, Montréal (adjacent to City Hall)
(métro Champ-de-Mars, Orange line)
A call out from Montréal’s Anti-Capitalist Convergence (CLAC-Montréal)
It would take the combined annual salaries of 1,119,789 minimum-wage earners in Québec to equal the combined wealth of the 10 richest people in Québec.
Out of a population of 8 million people, the 17 wealthiest people in Québec earn more than the million poorest people.
To US, its THEIR SYSTEM that’s the crisis.
For May Day 2012…
This is a call for a general strike.
A call for the expression of justifiable rage.
A call to all workers, unemployed, and precariously employed.
A call to the unionized that you should remember your role in this society and reclaim the proud history of militant labour. It is a call to bypass your crippling bureaucracies.
A call to the poor, the rejected, the downtrodden, and the marginalized.
A call to the students in struggle.
This is a call to all those who are pissed off and can’t take any more of this shit.
It is a call to all anti-capitalists, anarchists, communists, shit-disturbers, rebels, and revolutionaries.
It is a call to direct action, subversion, creative destruction.
It is a call to ferocity, courage, and diverse tactics.
For a resolutely anti-capitalist May Day, in the spirit of all who fought and died for the emancipation of the working class, this is a call to reclaim the streets, to break with the dominant order, and to occupy EVERYTHING. A call to show the world that without us, the capitalists are nothing.
Together, we are everything, we can do anything.
For an anti-capitalist May Day,
