Transcript Two May Days. ("Pravda," May ist, 1918). One is the First of May of the victorious proletariat, already organised as the ruling class. It is the holiday of the proletariat which is being attacked on all sides by world- capitalism, which sees in it the greater danger. . . . But this holiday already celebrates a victory over the Russian capitalist class, and heralds the final victory over the capitalists of the whole world. Of the propertied classes we make no demand but this : to disappear, and as quickly as possible; but we make this First of May demand of Imperialism the world over. Such is the First of May in every corner of the Russian Federal Soviet Republic—the First of May of the proletariat which has attained dictatorship. Miserable staves, groaning under the scourge : wretched beings, threatened by the sword and the rod : proletarians living in constant deadly fear, seeing nothing before them but the Imperialist slaughter—such is the First of May of the proletariat of other countries. . . . They are celebrating the international holiday of proletarian solidarity in the trenches and dugouts, like primitive men, who lived in caverns. This picture is supplemented by another, serving as a background for the first. The First of May of the workers, employed in different branches of war work, enslaved, living under the threat of the lash and the knife of the capitalist ciass. ... With their own hands they are turning out the weapons of murder and destruction, the weapons of their own oppression!. Crushed by military and police oppression, drunk with the intoxicating flattery of their own traitor- leaders, overwhelmed by want and remorse for their treachery, they begin to revolt: for they are the forerunners of revolution. There are two May Days : one the holiday of the proletariat which has never abandoned its thoughts of the revolution, the other the holiday of the workers who have renounced the revolutionary methods of the proletarian movement. •x- * * (9)
