One of the best documentations of last year's May Day was from local blogger Game Jew. From start to end, he captures the excitement of the day and how it turned to complete chaos.

The LAPD has done some retraining and today at the May Day marches and rallies, that will put it to test. Or else, as put in the headline of this video feature last year, "this shit isn't going to be people running. One day people are gonna be prepared for police to come and fuck with them."
