But instead of collecting it, they'll abolish it in random act of kindness. The Jubilee begins on November 15 with "The People's Bailout," a variety show and telethon in New York City, but you can make donations over at RollingJubilee.org. All proceeds will go towards buying and abolishing people's debt.

A mannequin hanging from a Las Vegas billboard emblazoned with "Dying For Work" had motorists lighting up 911 switchboards at the crack of dawn this morning -- drivers were convinced they were seeing a real person swinging from the rope.

Another billboard in the Las Vegas area read "Hope You're Happy Wall St.," with a second mannequin hanging from the edge.

No one has claimed responsibility for the creepy hangmen, though the website for Occupy Las Vegas applauds the displays, and accuses Nevada lawmakers of slashing social aid programs in the down economy.

"People saying it's in bad taste are living sheltered lives," says Sebring Frehner, an Occupy supporter. They "don't pay attention to what affects the working class."

Today's May Day general strike, driven by the Occupy Wall Street movement and labor activists worldwide, included peaceful protests in Washington, D.C., and London, injured rioters in Oakland, widespread vandalism in Seattle, more than 30 arrests in New York, and regularly scheduled activism in Portland. Protest organizers said they intended to show the "1 percent" what life without the "99 percent" would look like, encouraging workers and students to take a day off in solidarity against income inequality and "unjust" corporate practices.
