On August 15, 2017, May First/People Link issued the following statement:

The demand by the U.S. Department of Justice on Dreamhost, the Internet service provider, represents an outrageous escalation in the government's recent history of violation of citizens' rights and should draw a militant and resolute response of resistance.

May First/People Link invites you to join us for two important events at this year's Left Forum!

Friday, June 2 at 5:00 pm – Kickoff panel


A Call to Convergences on Technology and Revolution

The problems the human race faces pose the greatest threat to its existence in history.

If we can use the technology we have appropriately, plan and develop it intelligently and control it democratically, we can solve those problems.

Now what?

Technology and Revolution

The threat we face is enormous. The response to it has been over-whelming. The need for fundamental social change is unquestionable. The potential for that change is unprecedented.

May First/People Link has joined the Yes Men and Internet news commentator Rebecca ("Becky Boop") Prince in an Amicus Brief fighting corporate control over Internet content that was submitted to the Supreme Court today.

The case began when Universal Music Publishing Group forced the removal of a video of a dancing girl (posted by her mother) using the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) simply because music playing in the background was under their copyright ownership.
