MAY DAY 2000
NEW ZEALAND / AOTEAROA

Global Day of Action, Resistance and Solidarity

May Day ?

All around the world, Web Sites like this are appearing. Many groups are preparing for a global day of action in the same spirit on May 1, 2000, in recognition that the capitalist system, based on the exploitation of people, societies and the environment for the profit of a few, is the prime cause of our social and ecological troubles.

This day will continue the process of building up a strong, bold and creative grassroots movement against the exploitation and oppression of people, communities, and the environment, and for solidarity, co-operation, grassroots democracy, and ecological sustain ability. As on previous occasions, people of different movements and different countries will therefore join forces on this Day against the social, political, and economic institutions of the capitalist system. Workers, the unemployed, students, trade unionists, peasants, the landless, fishers, women groups, ethnic minorities, indigenous peoples, peace activists, environmental activists, ecologists, and so on will work in solidarity with one another in the understanding that their various struggles are not isolated from each other. The simultaneous occupation and transformation of the capitalist social order around the globe - in the streets, neighbourhoods, fields, factories, offices, commercial centres, financial districts, and so on - will strengthen mutual bonds at the local, national, and international levels.

The Day will be organized in a non-hierarchical way, as a decentralized and informal network of grassroots groups that employ non authoritarian, grassroots democratic forms of organization, struggle independent of the social, political, and economic institutions of the capitalist system, and seek to effect change directly through their own action. Each event or action will be organized autonomously by each group, while coalitions of various movements and groups can be formed at the local, regional, and national levels. Each group chooses autonomously how to take part in the Day, whether for instance to campaign against the entire capitalist system as such or to concentrate on a single issue or aspect of it. A strategy that may be useful at the local level is that various groups co-operate in creating a surrounding atmosphere of carnival and festivity as a setting for their various actions.

In New Zealand there is a network of different movements planning and preparing for May Day 2000. Co-ordinated actions are being organised nation-wide, from pickets to blockades, protests to street theatre and other actions that you wont find posted here. Become involved, fight back!!
