Friday April 27th at 7pm! Bands and Screenprinting! Come share with others your planned May Day related events and come hear about theirs!

Come out to hear Snail Party, from Canada! According to them: “snail party is a flailing orchestra made up of several scum fucks, a handful of crusty queers & a couple mortals too. we’re from halifax, nova scotia.”

You can listen to their music here: http://snailparty.bandcamp.com/

No cover charge, but please bring some money to donate to the band or buy merch from them if you can- they are coming a long way! All ages, sober show.
My Son the Doctor will be joining Snail Party to help celebrate International Worker’s Day!

Come ready to dance, screenprint a May Day patch with a design by Bizhan Khodabandeh, learn about other May Day events, and celebrate!

My Son the Doctor plays an eclectic mix of Eastern European, Balkan, and Mediterranean folk musics, with an emphasis on Yiddish, Hebrew, and Roma traditions. Klezmer dance tunes, Yiddish folk and theater songs, Israeli folk songs, Chassidic songs, Ladino songs, contemporary and traditional Roma songs, and Balkan pop—all with a high-energy approach with elements of rock, African music, and jazz.

Local graphic designer, Bizhan Khodabandeh has designed a May Day 2012 patch for Richmond that we will be printing on April 27th at the Pre-May Day Show at the Wingnut.

The patches are a roughly 4″ x 4″ design so bring pieces of fabric a little larger than that if you want to make a patch, or whatever fabric or shirt you want the image on! We will also have some pre-made for folks too.

Bizhan’s other amazing work can be found online at www.mendedarrow.com Bizhan has contributed a lot of work into Richmond May Day festivities over the past couple of years, designing previous bandannas and posters.

The Pre-May Day Show is on Friday April 27th at 7pm at 2005 Barton Avenue. There will be music and labor songs by Snail Party, My Son the Doctor, and 2 other local acts. Sober, All Ages. No cover charge, but donations for Snail Party from Canada and merch from other bands encouraged.

Direct Action Training
Wednesday 4/25Potluck Supper 5:30 – 6:30
Training 6:30 – 9:00Struggles for justice have intensified this year as our communities face an all-out assault on our rights. Growing ranks of activists getting organized to fight back find increased repression targeting protest and free speech. If ever a moment called us to bold action it is now.

Direct action can be a powerful tool to focus our collective power. In this highly interactive workshop we’ll explore the basics of how to plan organize and implement a safe, effective direct action. topics covered will include de-escalating behaviors in tense situations, quick decision-making, roles and responsibilities and more.

This training is offered in support of our movements for justice in this region by Occupy RVA and the Wayside Center for Popular Education.

Trainer: Jeff Winder
