May Day protests in Seattle [May. 1st, 2013|10:06 pm]
Russell Brunelle

I had an insight this afternoon: although this annual protest is scheduled to coincide with International Workers' Day, its actual function instead duplicates that of the "Running of the Bulls" in Pamplona just two months later: it gives people who have otherwise very safe and comfortable lives the rare chance to experience a rush of adrenaline by taunting something much more powerful than themselves.
