May Day is International Workers Day. It was born out of the struggles of workers here in America in 1886, when general strikes broke out across the land and were met with bloody repression - including the Haymarket Massacre in Chicago, followed by the frame-up and state-sanctioned executions of several anarchist labor organizers.

Since then, it has been observed world-wide as International Workers Day. This year once again, all over the globe, working people will take to the streets to celebrate their struggle for workers' rights and opposition to the capitalist’s wars.

We stand for a world free of bosses and borders. We are fighting and struggling so that one-day we will abolish them and take back control of our own lives, workplaces, and communities. This May Day, we will take back the streets of this city and stand in solidarity with the struggles of immigrant workers.

We will gather on Sunday May 1st at 3 PM at Jefferson Square Park (Gough/Turk) and march to Dolores Park in San Francisco’s Mission district. There we will hold a rally including speakers from recent and ongoing local labor and immigrant workers struggles with a report-back from the recent delegation, which went to Arizona protesting the racist vigilantes Minuteman Project. The march and rally will be followed by food, music, and a free movie screening at 7PM at Cellspace (2050 Bryant St). We will also hold a brief town-hall style meeting at Cellspace where we will discuss plans for fighting back against the proposed cuts and fare hike of San Francisco’s public transportation system.

Our final organizing meeting will be on Sunday April 24th at New College in San Francisco (766 Valencia St) Room 11B from 1PM to 3PM.


In Solidarity,
