Today - May 1st - is the International Workers' Day , also known as Labour Day or May Day. Today most of the world commemorates the "Haymarket affair" , and take to the streets for workers' rights and universal peace and brotherhood. That's the idea, anyway. Here in Denmark we go to the local parks and listen to boring politicians while eating hotdogs and getting shitfaced. Which, I suppose, is fine. Most people here are pretty content with workers' rights as they are. I'm not, of course, but I'm a filthy fringe leftie. Anyway, if you have any comments on the tradition, want to talk about how your country celebrates, or wish to rant about how it's all filthy commie bullshit, this is the place to do it. I'm always down for a bit of a rant myself.
