Whoa, Octavia

May 6, 2020

WHOA, Octavia!

Choose your leaders
with wisdom and forethought
To be led by a coward
is to be controlled
by all that coward feels
To be led by a fool
is to be led
by the opportunists
who control the fool
To be led by a thief
is to offer up
your most precious treasurers
to be stolen.
To be led by a liar
is to ask
to be told lies.
To be led by a tyrant
is to sell yourself
and those you love
into slavery..

Parable of the Talents. Octavia Butler

Happy May Day!

International Workers’ Day!

3.8 million of us filed for unemployment last week, and over 30 million in the past month—the contradictions of racial capitalism illuminated in full color and crystal clear terms.

The workers’ uprisings in May, 1886 and the fight for the 8-hour day included the Haymarket massacre here in Chicago.

The site of the rally and police riot was designated a Chicago landmark in 1992,and a sculpture was dedicated there in 2004. The Haymarket Martyrs’ Monument was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1997 at the defendants’ burial site in Forest Park.

All we want for May Day is a revolution!
