International Workers Day/A Day Without Immigrants
An International Workers Day/A Day Without Immigrants Rally will be held on May 1, 2017, 5:30-8:00 pm, at Guadalupe Plaza, 2311 Runnels Street, in Houston. This event will highlight the historic achievements and contemporary struggles of workers of all nationalities, as well as the imperative need for solidarity with our immigrant sisters and brothers, who are increasingly under attack. Working class, this is your cause! Join us!
The Rally will include speakers from sponsoring organizations, poets/spoken word artists, musicians, banners and signs, chants, and much more. This event is being organized by and for workers, whose labor makes life, society, and aspirations for a better future possible. There will be no government officials or politicians on the platform, but workers of all backgrounds are welcome.
Together, we will demand: Unite against Trump! Stop the deportations! Stop racist police terror! Black and Brown lives matter! Defend the Muslim community! Stop the attacks on women and the LGBT communities! Fight for $15/hour minimum wage, jobs for all, and the right to a union! Housing, health care, education, and retirement security for all! Stop the rise of fascism! End U.S. imperialist wars! Stop the destruction of Mother Earth! End capitalism before it ends us!
