Come and celebrate worker’s solidarity—May Day 2016—Wichita KS

May Day is the holiday that working people around the world celebrate for international worker’s solidarity. The US is one of the few countries that do not celebrate this with a legal holiday. The US government moved our Labor Day to September, many years ago, hoping to kill its meaning. Although most Americans no longer celebrate this holiday, many of us still do. We realize that Labor Day is supposed to be a day set aside to honor the struggle for worker’s rights, including the hard earned fight for an eight hour work day, an end to child labor, a five day work week and the right to organize ourselves into labor unions. The US right-wing has worked hard to reverse most of these gains and this is one day we can come together and support our rights as workers.

 This celebration will be at the Peace and Social Justice Center, May 1st, 5:30pm, at1407 N Topeka St, Wichita, KS 67214, (316) 263-5886. 
Come and bring a dish. Or just come and join in.
