Roanoke, VA | Roanoke May Day “No Borders In The Workers’ Struggle” Event

May 1 @ 3:00 pm

Join us for Roanoke’s May Day (International Workers Day) event! May Day was founded in the U.S. as a day for workers to fight for workers’ rights. Though it was federally replaced with “Labor Day” to vacationize and discourage collective struggle, it is acknowledged by most other countries worldwide. This year we will be collaborating with Raise Up for $15 (the southern branch of Fight for $15) a…nd have a focus on solidarity with immigrants. The working class is international; our enemies are not workers in foreign countries or immigrants who come here to work, but the bosses who control the means of production and who exploit all of our labor. This is why we say, “No Borders In The Workers’ Struggle”! We’ll have food, music, education about the history of direct action in labor struggles and victories here and abroad, trainings on workers’ rights and police encounters, and a chance for workers to speak out about current exploitation they face on the job. This is the perfect time and place for poor and working peoples in Roanoke to connect with each other and build our power in the streets!
