So much can change in a year. Last May Day, the amount of organizing energy and media hype surrounding plans for the annual holiday was staggering. For the first time in recent memory, unions and immigrant organizations, which had historically held separate May Day rallies, came together for a huge convergence, joined by other activist groups on the left. Among those was Occupy Wall Street, which publicly pinned its hopes to reclaiming the momentum it lost after the NYPD raid on Zuccotti Park on a massive showing on May Day.
