MAY 1 (May Day) is a day closely associated with the struggle of workers against the elite class. Check it out from the Marxists themselves. Since May 1, 1884, the declaration of the 8 hour work day, strange things happen on May 1st.
-1886- Rallies in U.S. culminate in Haymarket Affair (police officers killed by 'mostly friendly fire'?)
-1898- U.S. defeats Spanish-Pacific fleet in first battle of Spanish-American War.
-1900- Scofield mining disaster in Utah kills between 200-246 men.
-1945- Hitler, killed on April 30th, is discovered and announced dead.
-1966- Beatles perform final British concert. (This one may not be related but it just strikes me as odd that they chose 5/1/66, or 666.)
-2003- The famous Mission Accomplished speech.
-2011- U.S. President Obama announces the death of Osama bin Ladin. The most recent in a long line of bin Ladin death declarations.
