      Additional Report on MayDay 2009 Events being held that we know of

      Aurora Grajeda

      Below please find a Report on MayDay 2009 Events being held that we
      know of, if you are aware of other events, please let me know to
      update the list. In addition, there will be a follow-up on the number
      of people in attendance in each event, these numbers will be added to
      hopefully have a total which reflects the numbers from the Organizers
      or Attendees, to balance the numbers that the local Police Departments
      releases that, as we have known in the past, are always deflated.

      I've committed myself to compile these numbers to the best of my
      ability, if you can help in any way, this will enhance my ability to
      carry out this task - Repeating myself, I can use your help in these
      two areas, 1. If you know of an event which is not listed, please let
      me know and, 2. After the actions, if you do know the number of people
      in your event, or other events, please let me know. (My thanks to
      activists who have already made me aware of previously unknown events)

      "Charity is commendable; everyone should be charitable. But justice
      aims to create a social order in which, if individuals choose not to
      be charitable, people still don’t go hungry, unschooled or sick
      without care. Charity depends on the vicissitudes of whim and personal
      wealth; justice depends on commitment instead of circumstance.
      Faith-based charity provides crumbs from the table; faith-based
      justice offers a place at the table."
      -- Bill Moyers
