May Day '05 in New York (Soviet Union Square)

I suspect the male in the grey shirt and tie is a corporate fat cat who supports illegal immigration purely out of naked self interest. The American bourgeoisies grip of power has been slipping for decades. They appear to have resorted to forming an alliance with the reactionary Mexican lumpenproletariat.

"The 'dangerous class', the social scum, that passively rotting mass thrown off by the lowest layers of old society, may, here and there, be swept into the movement by a proletarian revolution; its conditions of life, however, prepare it far more for the part of a bribed tool of reactionary intrigue.

Mobile Guards, each a thousand strong, composed of young men from fifteen to twenty years old. They belonged for the most part to the lumpenproletariat, which in all big towns forms a mass sharply differentiated from the industrial proletariat, a recruiting ground for thieves and criminals of all kinds living on the crumbs of society, people without a definite trade, vagabonds, gens sans et sans aveu [men without hearth or home], varying according to the degree of civilisation of the nation to which they belong, but never renouncing their lazzaroni character at the youthful age at which the Provisional Government recruited them, thoroughly malleable, as capable of the most heroic deeds and the most exalted sacrifices as of the basest banditry and the foulest corruption.

From the aristocracy there were bankrupted roués of doubtful means and dubious provenance, from the bourgeoisie there were degenerate wastrels on the take, vagabonds, demobbed soldiers, discharged convicts, runaway galley slaves, swindlers and cheats, thugs, pickpockets, conjurers, card-sharps, pimps, brothel-keepers, porters, day-labourers, organ grinders, scrap dealers, knife grinders, tinkers and beggars, in short the whole amorphous, jumbled mass of flotsam and jetsam that the French term 'bohemian' [4]"

Karl Marx, Class Struggle in France

You don't fool us shirty. We know your game! Not since the times of Napoleon and Hitler have we seen such an unholy alliance between the bourgeois and lumpenproletariat. God help us!

I have always wanted to go to those things, but I'm all the way out in California, and nothing goes on here except gay marrige debates, and the Michael Jackson trial.

Fellow Comrade,
That is precisely the point. We should spread the word with this revolutionary idea. There should be some extra hammers and sickles over at Red Square. While you're at it, why don't you add a nice red star on the capitalist pigs' foreheads?

Looking out for fellow comrades,
