MAY DAY WHERE? UNION SQUARE!
Join us on International Workers' Day to celebrate the collective power of migrants and workers in New York and around the world!
We will be marching alongside Immigrant Worker Justice at 5pm, who will be ending their NYC Freedom Cities May Day + IWJ Tour 2018 ! at Union Square! Support their tour which starts at 2pm!
Over the past year, we have seen the Trump administration consistently deceive the American people as attacks against migrants and workers only worsen. We have seen rapidly growing numbers of ICE raids, thousands of deaths due to military air strikes throughout the Middle East, and the approval of a $700 billion dollar defense budget. At the same time, we have seen an intensification of resistance—from migrants putting their bodies on the line to stop deportations to huge strikes of teachers demanding better working conditions across the country. We must unite to demand an end to the growing imperialist crisis that burdens the working class, migrants, and people of color—as well as celebrate the growing resistance of our communities!
The organizations that are putting together May Day @ Union Square 2018 are not only resisting Trump but holding the whole corrupt system accountable. We are groups coming together representing Black, Brown, People of Color, Trans, LGBTQGNC, Migrant, Muslim, People with Criminal Convictions, Indigenous communities, and Workers who are uniting to defend our people!
