may, 1st ~ let's stand up for a better world

as every year, the labor day celebration (tag der arbeit) is a nice opportunity to stand up for a better world and to meet some fellow activists. well, many of the munich's activist and democratic powers have been here: trade unionists, communists, leftist political parties, environmental activists, peace activists ... and this time also groups of kurds, catalans (free catalonia) and iranians, i.e. nations who seek independence or protest against current arrangements of USA/NATO aggression wars against their countries ...

if you asked me, we are still much too few activists and people who care about our community/planet out there in order to actually reach any impact. unlike the OccupyWallStreet (#OWS) slogan 'we are the 99%', the today's world is probably more like this:
  • 1% are the really ugly greedy people (sometimes called 'elites') who try to destroy the world for power and profit
  • 1% activists protest/fight against the above group
  • 98% are ignorants who do not want to see + hear what happens around them and are not willing to say/do anything against the grievances. bread and circuses is everything what counts to them 
and yes, the elites know what destruction and what a death toll their actions / wars / laws / policies cause around the world. just listen what the opposition leader gregor gysi from the party 'die linke' told in german parliament 'bundestag' few days ago (in german, of course) to to german puppet government officials about current geopolitics, U.S. and NATOs aggression wars (= not self defense AND against international law):

here few pictures from today:
marienplatz in munich, the square in front of the town hall has already seen many protests and celebrations
the good old karl marx comes to save the planet :-)
the next big thing in munich's activists' calendar is the protest against the new planned bavarian  police laws which will give the police all the power to spy out / ban/ jail / ban citizens without legal trial. the suspicion by police is already enough
