May 1st, 2017: A Day Without Immigrants (Oakland and San Francisco)

May 1st is known throughout the world as International Workers’ Day. The day was the result of the struggle for the 8-hour workday and it started here in the US. It is a day where the working class shows who has the power in society. In 2006, it was the immigrants, largely Latinos, who gave the tradition new life in the US with the largest demonstration in U.S. history (until the Women’s March this year).

This event gives us the opportunity to stand together and begin to organize. We may disagree with Democrats and their supporters who may appear at these demonstrations, pretending that their policies would have been significantly different. But we can join thousands of other people in the streets with our OWN SIGNS and our own POLITICS!

Look for the Speak Out Now! Table and Booth.
