Fuck Parade: We are the start of something new

Remember the 1st of May FUCK PARADE is a costume party, a continuation of a traditional celebration that goes back 100s of years. So make sure you wear your costumes and your masks. Meet Sunday 1st May 2016, 6pm @ One Commercial Street, Aldgate, London E1 7PT…

May Day celebrations traditionally involve costumes that can be as elaborate or as simple as you like, often with animal themes. We enter into the spirit of May Day with honest intentions and it is our right and freedom to celebrate as we see fit.

Posted originally 27 April 2016: The Fuck Parade is something different, something unique and something alternative. We have grown tired of the wider left, we are bored of trotting around with trots waving placards trying to sell us papers that are not fit to wipe our arses with.

We realise that the bumbling around central London, with police dictating where we can and cannot go is like asking the school bully if he minds that you stand up to him, all the time they survey and record us, illegally, immorally and for their own devious ends.

Fuck Parade information 3 – Masks

Masking yourself can liberate you from your identity, transform you into a new hybrid creature. A costume can redefine your character and make clearer your existence. Cameras will be everywhere!

Across the world, wherever you look, in all cultures and traditions, the use of masks to transform the individual has been recognised and celebrated. Masking yourself can liberate you from your identity, transform you into a new hybrid creature, the goat, the fox, the cat, the dog, the fish, the cow. Masking can channel archetypes which allow us to speak the truth. Visibility through invisibility. And not be identified by surveillance cameras or pigs.

What is it about May Day?

May Day has ancient roots but also modern influences in the struggle for an 8-hour working day in the late 19th century.

The first day of May has for a long time been a day of celebration and pleasure. From pre-historic times, fairs would be held; there would be revelry, dancing and feasting across the country as a day of rest was enjoyed by all except the publicans and street cleaners. And there would be a lot of fucking.

The expensive London area of Mayfair is named after the annual fortnight-long May Fair that, from 1686 to 1764, took place on the site that is now Shepherd Market. The  area was bought up and developed to become a fashionable residential district. And so the fair was banned as the poor could no longer have their admittedly boisterous fun there because it was so much more important to build some really big houses for very rich cunts.
