May Day For the 99%: Resistance Is Fertile

Abby Zimet

Declaring Tuesday, International Workers' Day, "a holiday for the 99%," Occupy is calling for a general strike - no work, no school, no shopping - to "unite against a system which does not work for us (and) begin to build the world we want to see." Many activities here, here and here; Pete Seeger sings L'Internationale to fire you up.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
