It’s the first of May today, and while the date has several important associations (notably Beltane or the first day of summer in the pagan tradition) as a “socialist Canadian” (as I was once called while travelling in the States), I like to remember that it’s also May Day.
I’m not going to take to the streets with placards today, but I will be rebelling in my own small way – sowing a few seeds of dissent through carefully-aimed seedbombs. I urge you to do the same. It doesn’t have to be seeds – try out some moss graffiti, or guerilla gardening, or dig up your lawn and plant some food.
Gardening is political. Resistance is fertile!
