CHICAGO—(ENEWSPF)—May 1, 2017. Chicago Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is pleased to endorse International Workers’ Day demonstrations across the City of Chicago on Monday, May 1st. Workers and citizens in the United States are fed up with a system that favors the top 1%. As a result, support for socialist policies, such as single-payer healthcare and tuition-free public colleges, has increased dramatically since the November election. DSA’s nationwide enrollment has tripled in the past year with strong support in the Chicagoland area.
The Chicago May Day March (Main March) begins at 1pm on May 1st with thousands of participants marching from Lake and Ashland to Daley Square. The event has been organized by labor unions, immigrant organizations, environmentalists, socialist groups, and a broad coalition of Left organizations fighting for economic and social justice. The march will focus on protecting those that are under attack by the Trump regime and will highlight the need to resist racism and rebuild our community.
A complete statement by event organizers and a list of over 100 endorsers is here.
