  •  Reclaiming May Day for the 99% (5+ / 0-)

    As a longtime criminal defense lawyer, I've had to experience judges, prosecutors, and bar associations constantly touting "Law Day" and the activities designed to celebrate how we are a "nation of laws."  All the while, I and many of my fellow criminal defense lawyers have understood and recognized the true and original significance of May 1.  It was during the Red Scare that the federal government enacted legislation officially recognizing May 1 as "Law Day".  

    Maybe it's because we are used to battling against governmental abuses and for and on behalf of the despised and dispossessed; but, we've never recognized May 1 as "Law Day".  This year, I know many of my fellow defenders plan to join me in helping to reclaim May Day for the 99%.
