May Day March

Labor. Labor is defined as

la·bor (lā′bər)
1. Physical or mental exertion, especially when difficult or exhausting; work.

It’s what unites us. It’s the one line we all stand on. In some form or another we are all workers regardless of gender, race, religion, or orientation. It is what holds up the economy and drives the capitalist system that attacks and fails us daily. The wealth in this country unevenly distributed and the income inequality gap has only gotten bigger, yet it is our labor and exploitation that generates the almighty dollar that we aren’t getting. Does that make sense to you? How does that make you feel to know that there is literally a class called the working poor, yet we are told those 2 words aren’t supposed to go together!?

“All around the world May Day has been a day for direct action, reclaiming the streets, speaking out against injustice. Systematic racism, police violence, environmental catastrophes, and economic inequality are some of the many oppressions that are destroying our lives and the planet we live on. May Day should always be the day to take it to the next level and #shutitdown. We cannot continue to live this way and May Day we say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.”
