May 1st Int'l Workers' Day Action
Gather at 4pm on Thur. May 1, 24th and Mission Sts.

 

This Sat. April 26, 3pm - Planning Meeting for May 1st Int’l Workers’ Day Action
Mission Cultural Center - 2nd Floor, 2868 Mission St., SF
 
Mayday is celebrated by workers throughout the world. Even though it's origin stems from an 1886 uprising in Chicago, Mayday celebrations in the U.S. have been suppressed by the corporate media and establishment politicians alike. In 2006, however, the power of the immigrant rights movement reestablished May 1st as a day for U.S.-based mass movements to take their demands to the streets.
 
Today, as workers are facing poverty wages, evictions and foreclosures, deportations, police brutality and countless other forms of oppression, the date is an important one which can unite these issues that affect all workers.

The following is a list of demands under the slogan "The Community Fights Back! ¡La Comunidad a Pie de Lucha!"

  • Full Rights for All Immigrants! Stop the Deportations!
  • End the Evictions and Gentrification! Housing is a Right!
  • Stop Police Brutality!
  • Stop the Privatization of Public Services! Living Wage Now!
  • Halt and Reverse Environmental Destruction!
  • No to wars and occupation!

In San Francisco, there will be a May 1st action at 24th and Mission at 4pm. There will also be a short public social and a film showing at 7pm at 518 Valencia St at 16th St. See more details below.

Join community groups and activists to plan the march for this important date by attending a planning meeting this Sat., April 26, 3pm at the Mission Cultural Center, 2nd Floor, 2868 Mission St. at 25th St. There will be a short update on outreach and discussion about the day-of activities followed by a work session on developing the list of demands in order to present them on May 1st to the public.
