Reclaiming
Cinco de Mayo
Celebration of Cross-border Unity

The theme is rescuing Cinco de Mayo from its corporate commercialization
as "Drinko de Mayo." On May 5, 1862, a people’s militia fought invading
French troops in the town of Puebla, Mexico, defeating an army twice its
size. Napoleon was planning to intervene in the U.S. Civil War on the
side of the slavocracy. The intervention of the French could have been a
decisive factor leading to a Confederate victory in the Civil War. After
the battle of Gettysburg, Union forces joined Mexicans in their efforts
to drive out the French monarchy and reinstall the democratically
elected President Benito Juarez. Today, more than ever, we need unity in
a renewed struggle for greater democracy, especially economic democracy.

Rescate de Cinco de Mayo
Celebración de la Unidad Transfronteriza

El tema es "La recuperación del Cinco de Mayo" de su comercialización
corporativa como "Drinko de Mayo." El 5 de mayo de 1862, una milicia
popular lucharon las tropas invasoras francesas en la ciudad de Puebla,
México, derrotando a un ejército dos veces su tamaño. Napoleón tenía la
intención de intervenir en la Guerra Civil de los EE.UU. en el lado del
régimen esclavista. La intervención de los franceses podría haber sido
un factor decisivo que conduce a una victoria de los confederados en la
Guerra Civil. Después de la batalla de Gettysburg, se unió a las fuerzas
de la Unión los mexicanos en sus esfuerzos por expulsar a la monarquía
francesa y vuelva a instalar el democráticamente elegido presidente
Benito Juárez. Lo que necesitamos ahora más que nunca es una lucha
renovada para una mayor democracia, la democracia, especialmente
económicas.
