2. Today in DC! STILL powerful and resonant!

This could be the Democratic Party platform!

May Day is an international working class holiday. All around the world workers will be marching against racism, sexism and capitalism.

This year, the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, we commemorate that historic event with our march.

To Demand Political Power for the Working Class – We call on all workers to organize their workplaces and communities to take political power from the banks, corporations, political parties, and politicians of the 1%.

To Smash Racism, Sexism, and Fascism – We stand united against racism, sexism, homophobia and transphobia, anti-Semitism and Islamophobia – the tools used by capitalists and politicians to divide, suppress, and intimidate our communities.

To Stop Mass Deportations – We demand an end to racist deportation policies and travel bans. Corporate profiteering, a corrupt and ineffectual political class and the police state are the driving forces behind our economic and physical insecurity.

To End Mass Incarceration – We demand an end to militarized and racialized policing, which overwhelmingly criminalize and incarcerate the poor and people of color, protect the interests of corporations and banks, and stifle protest and political dissent.

To Oppose Imperialist War – We demand an end to US wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Pakistan, Somalia, and Libya, an end to US military expansionism, and US support for tyranny, apartheid, and violence abroad.

To Defend the Earth and its Resources – We demand an end to the commodification of the planet’s natural resources which threaten to destroy our natural environment and the health and safety of all living organisms.

To Fight for Health Care, Education, and a Living Wage for All – We demand universal healthcare, quality education, and a living wage for all as human rights, not as products for the enjoyment of the wealthy and the profiteering of the 1%.


WE CALL UPON ALL WORKERS, STUDENTS, AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS TO UNITE FOR A MARCH AND DAY OF ACTION ON MAYDAY IN WASHINGTON, DC.

RALLY AT 12:00 PM
MARCH AT 1:30 PM
