Maybe it’s the ongoing student protests in Quebec over tuition hikes or the national general strikes in Spain, or maybe it is just the return of warmer weather, but it appears that the Occupy Movement is enjoying a resurgence of energy, spirit and imagination, reinvigorating the 99% to continue the fight for economic and social justice that began last October with the occupation of Zuccotti Park and sparked a global movement.

Beginning May 1st-- International Workers Day -- the Occupy Movement is calling for a month-long general strike. For a comprehensive list of May Day protests check out http://occupywallst.org/article/may-day/

Protests are planned in 115 cities around the world, reportedly including blocking the Golden Gate Bridge, swarming Chicago and confronting NATO.

It was the Adbusters website (the organization that sparked the Occupy engine) that got me caught up in the excitement of the May Occupy General Strike Action. So in support, New Society Publishers presents our “A Book a Day for the Month of May” giveaway.

To enter all you have to do is retweet our contest tweet @newsocietypub or share the post of the day on the social media of your choice using the SHARE THIS widget that appears below the post and then leave a blog comment to let us know you have done so.
