In the United States, grassroots organizers of May Day 2006 called for a day of, "No Work, No School, No Buying, No Selling" to help illustrate to critical role that migrants play in the United States, and global, economy.

May Day is a global day of action and the 'national boycott' had no borders. In Mexico City, Subcomandante Zero (formaly known as Marcos) spoke at the "Day Without Gringos" rally in solidarity with immigrants struggling inside the United States.

Protests were held all over the US and all over the world.
