MayDay ’08

From the Industrial Worker

“Capitalism cannot be reformed” reads the French banner of the Ottawa-
Outaouais IWW branch which came out to support the IWW Ottawa Panhandlers Union on May 1. A tea party and march to impeach the anti-panhandler Ottawa Mayor Larry O’Brien proceeded, despite the early morning arrest of organizer, Andrew Nellis. Protesters were thrown out of the court building before Nellis’ bail hearing. Nellis was released with minimal bail conditions.
