May Day Rally

Tuesday May 1, 2018 12:00 noon
San Francisco City Hall Polk St. Entrance

The attack on working people in the Bay Area and nationally is escalating. Union busting is going on nationally as the Trump government is attempt- ing to get “open shop” anti-labor

laws passed nationally by the US Supreme Court. The massive attack on workers includes evicting working people from their homes and driving them to the streets and tents that grow in every city and town. At the same time the militarization of the police and police murders of our youth and community members continue with impunity and politicians who refuse to hold them accountable.

The massive gentrification and privatization of health centers and public resources is combined with racist hiring practices and the policy of driving African Americans and Latinos out of the cities for million dollar condos and speculators profiteering. The racist attacks are also on the jobs with hanging nooses including on the docks at SSA, Oakland City Maintenance yard and at other work locations. The growing fascist and neo-nazi racist movement is a threat to all working people. The ICE terror campaign against immigrant workers is aimed at creating fear and hysteria among our immigrant brothers and sisters and their families and allowing the bosses to further exploit these workers for more profits. Women, LBGT and anti-Muslim attacks continue to grow as well as the bosses want to divide all working people against each other.

On May Day, we also protest the growing war drive by the US capitalist government. The Democrats and Republicans just increased the military budget by $65 billion to a total of $700 billion while our schools are being privatized with charters and working people are dying due to the lack of healthcare. The main war is not against our brothers and sisters over the borders but with the gangsters and billionaires that run the US government. They are at war with people around the world and against working people in the US.

On May Day, we unite all workers against union busting, slave labor, racist attacks and the ICE raids. We unite with our brothers and sisters in solidarity here and around the world and fight for workers power and solidarity.

On May Day WSAN Supports International Day Of Action For San Quintin Driscoll Workers Fighting For Union Recognition and Living Wages
On April 7, 2018, the Workers Solidarity Action Network initiated the call for an international day of action on May Day 2018 for the 80,000 workers in San Quintin who are fighting for union recognition and living wages.
These workers face slave like conditions with wages of $7 to $12 a day on the border of California working for the US based multi-national Driscolls. We are calling on all workers as part of their action on May Day to go to a grocery store that carries Driscolls berries and let them know that these berries should not be stocked.
Please video tape and photograph your actions and post it on our website.
Our direct solidarity with our brothers and sisters on May Day is an important act of international solidarity,
