The Truth About May Day

As I write this police are using tear gas on protestors in Istanbul. It appears as if it is going to be another rowdy May 1. Today is International Worker's Day, which is a celebration of labor and the working classes. May 1 is a national public holiday in more than 80 countries, though in some countries it is called Labor Day or something similar. Almost every year capitals across the world erupt in protest.
