International Socialist Organization May Day Contingent
May 1, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The New York City International Socialist Organization is proud be a part of this huge coalition of groups and unions organizing a mass march on May Day.
From its origin in Chicago with the struggle by largely immigrant workers for the 8-hour day through the mega marches in 2006 to defeat anti-immigrant legislation May Day has been a day of struggle and solidarity. International Workers Day, celebrated around the world, is a day for the international movement of workers, or the exploited, and oppressed to join together in common struggle. This year’s May Day will feature a national call to action to resist those who are under attack. Trump has signaled that increased deportations and attacks on immigrants is on his agenda. While the attacks have been particularly fierce under Trump they are nothing new. A movement against the bans and walls of Trump is being built that take on these struggles regardless of who is sitting in the White House.
Join us for the international workers’ Day. Our contingent will be supporting immigrant workers to strike. We will have a table and banner at the various actions.
12:30pm: Washington Square Park – Immigrant Worker Justice tour
3:00pm: Union Square at and we will march down to Foley Square.
5:00pm: Foley Square – New York Immigration Coalition, Make the Road and a bunch of unions (32BJ, NYC Teamster Joint Council)
