May 1st is International Workers’ Day and in recent years has been an important day in the struggle for Immigrant rights. The holiday began as part of the struggle for the 8 hour day and to honor the haymarket massacre and martyrs of 1886. In , 2011, We are seeing attacks on working and poor people from Wisconsin to Michigan and beyond and attacks on Immigrants from Arizona to Georgia.
The social cuts, austerity measures and deportations are part of a broader attack on working and poor people and must be confronted. Labor, Immigrants and the poor can and should organize to fight back.
Join us for May Day festivities to honor struggles for justice and dignity!
Join us in todays fight for worker and immigrant rights!
