MAY DAY: IWW Black and Red Brigade Rally and Feeder March – Join Workers Around the World

CHICAGO—(ENEWSPF)—April 30, 2014. May 1st is May Day, or International Workers Day, a time for all members of the working class to come together and build solidarity. The Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) Chicago are calling all radical anti-capitalists to rally in Union Park at 11:30am, before stepping off at 2:15pm to join the May Day March to Stop Deportations at the Haymarket Memorial, at 175 N. Desplaines.

“On May Day, we celebrate the victories won in the struggle for workers rights, and mourn those who gave their lives for the protections we enjoy today,” says Alison Olhava, an organizer with the IWW Chicago. “The fight is far from over. We’re calling Chicago to stand with us on May Day to show the bosses and landlords that they need us, we don’t need them. It is a time to fight for the destruction of capitalism and to begin building a new world in the ashes of the old.”

The IWW has planned a week of events to celebrate the May Day holiday, including a teach-in Saturday, 4/26 where participants discussed the history of May Day, syndicalism, and radical unionism. They will also host a benefit concert after the rallies at 6:00pm on May Day at UE Hall, 37 S. Ashland, and a pot-luck at the Haymarket Martyr’s Memorial in Forrest Home Cemetery the following weekend.
