Syracuse, NY | May 1 Strike – Huelga Primero Mayo

May 1 @ 12:00 pm

May 1 Strike – March and Rally on International Workers Day

* March will start at Perseverance Park – S. Salina and Fayette Streets in downtown Syracuse.
We refuse to stay silent as government and corporate interests:
– Escalate immigration raids that are shattering families
– Violate Native sovereignty and ban Muslims because of their faith
– Increase the criminalization of Black and Brown communities and exclude trans people from public life
Drive down wages, safety protections, and organizing rights while rapidly destroying the environment
OUR DEMAND
We strike together for a world where the most marginalized working families live with dignity, safety and power.
We need to show this Administration, Congress and large corporate interests that our human and economic worth is more powerful than their agenda of hate and greed. Opposing Trump is not enough. We must stop him.

#may1strike is an invitation of the Food Chain Workers Alliance and SEIU USWW and locally of the Workers’ Center of CNY, The Syracuse Peace Council, CNY Solidarity, The International Socialist Organization (ISO), The Workers World Party (list forming) and a growing list of grassroots organizations to build a General Strike on International Workers Day.
Stand with us to pledge your participation. More information on how to participate and the rally coming soon.
