The Haymarket Martyrs were protesting for an 8 hour day, a 9-5. When was the last time anyone just worked 9-5? Why should we live in a world where profit is put above anything else, what about the planet, what about our lives, how about some fun?

Dressing Up Guide
We are fed up with the profit chasing corporate culture we live in. Where money comes above all else, certainly above quality of life, the state of the planet and even fun. To rectify the situation, and to resurect an ancient day of trouble and celebration we are going to be hosting a dance in the streets of corporate London. There will be a singalonga with Jarvis (because as he said "Cunt's are still running the world"), a secret samba band, and many more tricks up our sleeve.
However we're not going to do all the work, were anarchitects after all! The party will require a bit of homework on your behalf! If you have always had a desire to gig in public, now's your chance, if you have a super duper sound system you have hidden a briefcase, well why not show it off. If you have any other naughty plans, then get planning. We're not your boss, we're a bit like your mate who eggs you on too much.
We're hosting a huge party in a secret location in corporate London, but to sneak past the police, and allow everyone to converge, you are going to need a disguise. You need to get yourself a suit and look the part. There is a guide at the bottom of the page.
Then at 5pm on Tues May 1st we will be kicking off the beats. Location at the mo is top secret, so check www.spacehijackers.org the day before for details, and invite your friends.
5pm by the clocks
Reuters Square / Canada Square
The south side of Canary Wharf - London
The party starts at 5pm prompt, however in order to arrive safely and sneak along, we recommend that you arrive early and have a drink in one of the many nearby bars.
Remember stealth and cunning is the key to getting this party started, dress in disguise (look as corporate as possible, see the dressing up guide below), if you are asked any questions insist that you work there and are just dancing along with everyone else.
If you are going to bring drinks, make them subtle, hip flasks not cans of Stella. Alternatively drink in the nearby bars.
Join in the singalonga - print out a song sheet available below.
Bring friends, bring instruments, bring bands, bring drinks and cakes to share, bring smiles and bring your dancing shoes!
