Today is a “Bank Holiday” in the UK.

Or, another example of how the workers’ movement has been deracinated and disempowered by the hegemony via co-option. The capitalists have turned the holiday celebrating the international worker into a day which they have been so kind as to temporarily unshackle you from the machine to which your life is a service.

Might I add that, while the International Workers Day celebrates the Haymarket Massacre, it also coincides with pagan May Day, which has also been disempowered by the name change.

Happy Bank Holiday, everyone.
