May First/People Link
May First/People Link is a politically progressive member-run and controlled organization that redefines the concept of “Internet Service Provider” in a collective and collaborative way. May First/People Link’s members are organizers and activists. As a democratic membership organization, we gather together each year to evaluate the past year’s experiences, plan the coming year’s work and elect a Leadership Committee to apply what we’ve decided. Like a coop, we pay dues, buy equipment and then we all use that equipment as we need to for websites, email, email lists, and just about everything else we do on the Internet. As an organization of the social change movements of the United States and Mexico (primarily) we use our resources to fund work within the movement, its many campaigns and its convergences. We are an organization of resource sharing and activism and view those two roles as fundamentally two parts of the same.
