May Day Spring Celebration!
May Day, May 1st, has historically been a day of celebration for the coming of Spring and International Labor Day! In honoring both the green and red inherent in May Day, we strive as Occupy Olympia to make a meaningful event for our heart and soul. Music, community potluck and festivities in the evening starting at 4PM with the music of the Tilted Stilts. Picket the Wall Street banks starting at 4:30, as part of the campaign to close down Wall Street here & everywhere. Building our local community power we set a goal to collect 2400 petition signatures in 24 hours to put an initiative on the ballot for the people's power company over the foreign owned PSE corporation. Danny Kelly is playing at 5:45, followed by reggae in the park till the light fades away with High Ceiling. There may be a MAY POLE.
