Additional Report on MayDay 2009 Events being held that we know of

Aurora Grajeda

Below please find a Report on MayDay 2009 Events being held that we
know of, if you are aware of other events, please let me know to
update the list. In addition, there will be a follow-up on the number
of people in attendance in each event, these numbers will be added to
hopefully have a total which reflects the numbers from the Organizers
or Attendees, to balance the numbers that the local Police Departments
releases that, as we have known in the past, are always deflated.

I've committed myself to compile these numbers to the best of my
ability, if you can help in any way, this will enhance my ability to
carry out this task - Repeating myself, I can use your help in these
two areas, 1. If you know of an event which is not listed, please let
me know and, 2. After the actions, if you do know the number of people
in your event, or other events, please let me know. (My thanks to
activists who have already made me aware of previously unknown events)

"Charity is commendable; everyone should be charitable. But justice
aims to create a social order in which, if individuals choose not to
be charitable, people still dont go hungry, unschooled or sick
without care. Charity depends on the vicissitudes of whim and personal
wealth; justice depends on commitment instead of circumstance.
Faith-based charity provides crumbs from the table; faith-based
justice offers a place at the table."
-- Bill Moyers
