May Day on Clerkenwell Green.
I usually turn out for the annual May Day gathering of the comrades on Clerkenwell Green and have even been known to go on the march, although I must admit that staying on the green for a few pints with the anarchists is hard to resist. In spite of all my misgivings about the huge Stalin banners usually on display I suppose that such gatherings do serve to remind us that 21st century capitalism is not an inevitable blueprint of how the world will be from now until the cows come home. There is another way. We can do better than this.
