GLOBALISATION of MAY 1st GENERAL STRIKE

May 1st, 2012, is a global general strike. Every year millions of people around the world celebrate May 1st as a dignified day of revolt against this system. May Day is an international holiday that commemorates the 1886 Haymarket Massacre, when Chicago police defending, as always, the interests of the ruling class attacked and murdered workers participating in a general strike and demanding an 8-hour workday. Five anarchists, known as the Haymarket Martyrs, were framed and sentenced to death as a result.

A pivotal p2p transition moment: Open Source Ecology launches Extreme Manufacturing platform | ANOTHER WORLD, NOW!  GLOBAL SPRING #1M #12M #15M | Scoop.it

The birth of the era of mass production, based on economies of scale, which is now ending, was when Ford instituted the Assembly line. The birth of the era of physical peer production, based on economies of scope, occured thanks to the convergence of Marcin Jakubowski’s Open Source Ecology, an integrated set of openly designed machines that can sustain a ‘Global Village’; and Wikispeed’s pioneering use of distributed software development techniques, to the production of the Wikispeed open source car.

Like the invention of Bitcoin as a first workable post-Westphalian currency, this is another seminal moment in the transition to a peer to peer society.
