May 8th

1898: The first games of the Italian soccer league system are played... no one has scored a goal yet.

1933: Mohandas Gandhi begins a 21-day fast in protest against British oppression... and British food.

1970: The Hard Hat riot occurs in the Wall Street area of New York City as blue-collar construction workers clash with demonstrators protesting the Vietnam War... or maybe they were just fighting over a parking space, no one is sure.
