Join in the resistance! May Day 2019 – International Workers’ Day

Rally 2:30 PM - Boston Common, Parkman Bandstand
Followed by a Puppet Parade to the Government Center T stop where we 
will depart for the Rally in East Boston scheduled for 5:30.

Are you fed up and think it is time to end the empire? Join us then on 
May Day where folks will gather to oppose the wars, the blockade of 
Venezuela, the border wall, deportations, and racism. Let’s come 
together to support driver's licenses for all, free healthcare, 
education, and childcare, affordable housing, and rights for working 
people including abolishing the wage system. Instead of declaring a 
national emergency to build a wall, let’s declare a national emergency 
to combat climate change, rebuild the crumbling infrastructure, and end 
police brutality. Join us in demanding immediate legal permanent 
residence for all undocumented migrants.

This year’s May Day will feature a Puppet Parade including a funeral 
procession for capitalism. Let’s usher in spring with a fresh and 
energetic rally and parade which will celebrate the resistance of 
working people and the oppressed worldwide. May Day originated in the US 
in 1886 when workers conducted a general strike demanding the 8-hour 
day. It is officially celebrated around the world but not here in the 
US. International Workers' Day should be a national holiday!

This year’s May Day comes in the context of a generalized assault coming 
down on working people and youth. Today, 140 million people in the US 
are living either in poverty or in low income households and the wealth 
gap continues to widen. The polarization is deepening. Attacks are 
coming down on migrants, women, Muslims, LGBT folks, oppressed 
nationalities, and more… Let’s join together in the struggle to make a 
better world.


¡Únete a la resistencia! Unámonos para exigir licencias de conducir para 
todos, atención médica gratuita, educación y cuidado de niños, viviendas 
asequibles y derechos para los trabajadores, incluida la abolición del 
sistema salarial.

En lugar de declarar una emergencia nacional para construir un muro, 
declaremos una emergencia nacional para combatir el cambio climático, 
reconstruir la infraestructura desmoronada y poner fin a la brutalidad 
policial. Únase a nosotros para exigir la residencia permanente legal 
inmediata para todos los migrantes indocumentados y poner fin al bloqueo 
de Venezuela.

El Primero de Mayo de este año contará con un Desfile de Títeres que 
incluye una procesión funeraria para el capitalismo. Iniciemos la 
primavera con un fresco y enérgico manifestación y desfile que celebrará 
la resistencia de los trabajadores y los oprimidos de todo el mundo.
