The deep economic and social crisis we are living through is 
unprecedented in contemporary history. The death toll in the US from the 
coronavirus has far surpassed the total number of US deaths from World 
War II, the wars in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan combined. 
While so many of us have been dying, Wall Street has been soaring to 
all-time highs! The depth of the crisis was underscored when fascist 
supporters of Trump and Wall Street took over the Capitol in an effort 
to and overturn the election. The response of the repressive forces 
would have been qualitatively different if crowds opposing systemic 
racism and social injustice had stormed the Capitol. From the evidence 
emerging, many folks now understand that many of the police are merely 
fascists in uniform and cannot be relied upon to defend our rights.

The brutal murders of Black folks by racist police continue while the 
guilty cops run around free. The broad resistance in the streets to 
police brutality will continue until there is justice on a broad scale. 
Let’s celebrate this resistance! In response to Anti-Asian hate, 
solidarity with our Asian sisters and brothers is on the rise. Let’s 
celebrate this resistance! The resistance can be seen among workers as 
well. From Amazon workers in Bessemer, Alabama to striking MNA nurses in 
Worcester, workers are organizing unions and fighting the bosses. Let’s 
celebrate this resistance! In spite of widespread support for our 
migrant sisters and brothers, deportations continue, and millions of 
immigrants lack driver’s licenses and legal permanent resident status. 
The resistance to this Federal repression will continue. Let’s celebrate 
this resistance! From record high temperatures and droughts to deep snow 
and ice in Texas, the future of extreme climate is upon us. The fossil 
fuel industries, the war machine, and imperial wars have faced 
world-wide resistance. Let’s celebrate this resistance!
Let's join together for an all day celebration of May Day 2021 starting 
at 1:00 PM on Boston Common. The Rally will be followed by a March to 
Nubian Square. Upon arrival at Nubian Square, there will be another 
Rally followed by a nighttime March @ 6:00 PM cosponsored by New England 
Front Against Fascism.
