I understand that the significance of this day has vanished from our collective consciousness, but I will not let us forget! Today is International Worker's Day, a day that will be observed worldwide, but not by the US or Canada. Nevertheless, I implore us to remember why this day is important and to join our brothers and sisters worldwide in solidarity.
As for me, I am commemorating the day by digitally releasing my new single, Pax Americana, and kicking off the GioSafari sweepstakes for the month of May. Unfortunately, I can't quite start the sweepstakes until the song is made available at online stores... it will take a few days for Amazon and a week or two for iTunes. I will post all the rules (it'll be super easy!) as soon as one of these stores makes it available.
Also I wrote an essay about Labor Day (the US equivalent of May Day) last year, here's the link so you can read and learn more about what this day is all about:
