This iReport is part of an assignment:
Occupy Wall Street
Mayday in Oslo
Except a little. This year was just a little special due to the events of July 22nd 2011. The attac on the labour party, and modern day Norway. An attack on the left wing, and laborparty in specific.
Still, the parade 2012 went along peacfuly, in the sunshine.
Contrasting what one sees in USA, the day is long a go established as a protest day.
In that regard, its interesting, to see a tradition, for once, being adopted from Europe to USA following the last centuries of expansion of American culture and traditions to Europe and other parts of the world.
That aside. This year, the focus is on USA. The rising of the working class. The 99% - their right to assembly and peaceful protest.
Most recently granted in a UN resolution from November 2011; Promotion and protection of Human rights A/C.3/66/L.44/Rev.1
Hopefully, this 1st of May will mark a new era for the American people and pave the way out of the grip of financial crisis and corporate greed.
