As we approach Labor Day, this weekend is usually portrayed as a holiday marking the end of summer with a burst of bargain sales, or that it was created as an apolitical alternative to May Day. In reality, Labor Day has a rich and militant labor history that needs to be reclaimed for all workers!

Gene Ruyle, Emeritus Professor of Anthropology at CSU, Long Beach, and author of “Rethinking Marxist Anthropology” and other works.

Open to the public

Sponsored by the San José Peace and Justice Center, South Bay Labor Council, EDGE for Economic Justice, Green Party of Santa Clara County, and Peace and Freedom Party of Santa Clara County
