May Day #ShutDownDC – Swarm the Capitol
May 1 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The COVID-19 pandemic has cracked open the veneer of our economic and social system. It’s putting the inequities in health care, wealth, housing, education, and much more on full display, and exacerbating existing crises. And unless we stop them, the politicians and lobbyists will continue to take advantage of this pandemic to suppress the vote, funnel hundreds of billions of dollars to their corporate cronies, and loosen already inadequate environmental regulations.
In the 10 days between Earth Day and May Day (International Workers Day) we’ve been taking direct action online AND in person (safely) to disrupt the interlocking systems that are threatening our collective survival and build a collaborative framework for a healthier, more just and sustainable world.
Join us on May Day (Friday, May 1) to swarm the Capitol and White House. Come by car, bike or on foot. Wear masks and other appropriate personal protective equipment and keep each other safe by practicing appropriate physical distancing.
