Unéte al Dia Sin Inmigrantes y Trabajadores/Join the Day Without Workers and Immigrants

May Day history: Celebrating May 1st as May Day started in Chicago in 1886 as part of the labor movement’s fight for the eight-hour work day. May Day, the international workers’ holiday, was born in the United States!

El primero de mayo, nosotros invita a los trabajadores que dejen los campos, la maquilas, los restaurantes y los hoteles para paralizar la economía y demostrar los millones de dólares que los inmigrantes y trabajadores contribuyen a este país cada día.

No vamos a trabajar. No vamos a la escuela. No vamos a comprar. Te uniras?
On May 1st, we invite workers to leave the fields, the factories, the restaurants, and hotels to paralyze the economy and demonstrate the millions of dollars that immigrants and workers contribute daily.
We will not go to work. We will not go to school. We will not buy. Will you join us?

More details soon! But please plan to join us in Springfield!
