March 26: May Day 2015 Organizing Meeting
This is the 10th Anniversary of re-claiming May Day, a day that symbolizes the courage & struggle of workers, a day of International Solidarity for workers’ rights.
The May 1st Coalition calls on all our allies, new movements, community organizations, grass roots organizations, faith-based groups, unions, and individuals to join us for the first planning meeting for May Day 2015 on Thursday, March 26.
We will build this May Day at a time when there is a powerful new upsurge of militancy nationwide. Young women and men are leading this movement with powerful courage and resolve. They are spiriting the struggle against police killings of Black and Latino young men, women and children. They are organizing fast food and low-wage workers; they are fighting against the destruction of public education; for affordable housing and against chronic unemployment.
The battle for legalization of immigrants continues the struggle against the massive deportations; two million since Obama took office. Thousands of women and unaccompanied children are arriving creating a terrible crisis of family separation. Opposition to private prisons for immigrants and mass incarceration of youth of color is growing.
2015 may be the most important May Day we have faced in the past 10 years.
Be there Thursday, March 26, 2015.
