What is May Day?
On May 1, 1898, Chicago workers striked for the eight hour workday. Over one hundred years later, May Day, or International Worker’s Day, has become a historic symbol of economic struggle. As neoliberal policies and fascist administrations across the world have attacked im/migrant and working class communities, from Palestine to Mexico to San Jose, join us on May 1 for a March to Break Down Walls and Build Bridges!
