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.
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
