With a darker view of society, Occupy Whatever members view May Day as a worker rights holiday featuring celebrations of anarchy and revolution (livestream via Adrienne's Corner and here).
Today, Cleveland area FBI agents observed May Day by escorting to court a trio of Occupy-connected, self-proclaimed anarchists who attempted to blow up a bridge on state Route 82 in Cuyahoga Valley National Park:
Arrested yesterday in connection with the bomb plot were Brandon L. Baxter, 20, Connor C. Stevens, 20, Joshua S. Stafford, 23, Douglas L. Wright, 26, and Anthony Hayne, 35. Three of these men, Baxter, Wright, and Hayne "are being charged with conspiracy and attempted use of explosive materials to damage physical property affecting interstate commerce."

Charges against Stevens and Stafford are pending.
Not being held accountable are the Occupiers and Occupier fans who glamorize socialism, communism, anarchy, street violence, and revolution.
Via CBS Chicago, the Occupy Cleveland anarchists who planned to blow up a Cleveland area bridge "also talked about plotting acts of terror in Chicago during the NATO summit":

Wright said it would be “crazy” in Cleveland after the group blew up the bridge, but “crazier in Chicago with people coming from everywhere to Chicago to protest the NATO summit. Wright also “predicted a ‘s**t load’ of people going to Chicago to protest the summit would first come to Cleveland, presumably drawn by the destruction of the bridge.
He predicted that anarchists ultimately headed to Chicago would riot in Cleveland for a week, “then everyone will leave and downtown Cleveland will ‘be a pile of rubble and ashes,’ as anarchists in every major city in the country will ultimately be ‘rioting and destroying each city,’” the criminal complaint said.
