Remember how, last year, we all got together on May Day and launched a few thousand seed bombs onto Water Street? Well, if you’re up for it, quite a few of us will be gathering there again on Thursday. There won’t be seed bombs, but my sense is that we’ll have a pretty good time in spite of it. (Some of our native wildflowers are already starting to come up.) The potluck will begin at 5:30, but there will be events on Water Street throughout the day. As of right now, here’s what’s on the agenda.
1:30 PM Anti-racist reading group, discussing “Who is Oakland: anti-oppression activism, the politics of safety, and state co-optation“
2:30 PM Eco-Justice workshops coordinated by the Ypsi Free Skool:
“Michigan’s Getting Fracked Up” with the Sierra Club
“The Basics on the AATA Bus Expansion” with Partners in Transit
“System Change, Not Climate Change”
3:30 PM “The History of May Day” puppet show with Momo & Blake
5:30 PM Potluck
Everyone is welcome.

Also, as in years past, Billy Bragg will be with us in spirit.
