Report from Al Jazeera on clashes that "marred" May Day celebrations. Isn't that just a proper May Day celebration?
On a better note, the image above: protesters in Moscow calling for a return to Communism. For all of us searching for a visual rallying cry toward thinking political alternatives, etc, I think our flag has been found. Something of the austerity and translucent ghostliness of the sun shining gray through the flags and the black stamp of the hammer and sickle against the blue sky. Especially when it flaps and flies above two toddlers in red jackets hand in hand alongside the column of marchers.
