Are You "Spring Trained" For May Day?

By Danny Schechter, News Dissector

Our Own Stand Your Ground Message, 1894

...Let the winds lift your banners from far lands    

With a message of strife and of hope:

Raise the Maypole aloft with its garlands      

That gathers your cause in its scope....

...Stand fast, then, Oh Workers, your ground, 

Together pull, strong and united:

Link your hands like a chain the world round,      

If you will that your hopes be requited.

New York, New York: When you hear the term "Spring Training," most of us think baseball, but, this year, it has a different context because the Occupy Movement has appropriated the term to describe educating and preparing activists for non-violent nationwide protests and a hoped for General Strike slated for May Day 2012, this May 1.

This idea of "Spring" is more connected to the "Arab Spring," a time of revolt than the season we've entered.
