May Day

Happy May Day everybody!! May 1st is celebrated worldwide by labour movements, workers' unions, socialists, and anybody dedicated to the improvement of labour conditions and workers' rights. Unfortunately, Canada and America do not celebrate, likely due to the stigma attached to labour agitation during the Cold War. In any case, today is a day for both joy and outrage. We must always be thankful for those who have given their lives in the endless struggle for a better life, while never forgetting that this battle is not yet won.

Long live the International. Long live freedom. Long live justice.

Happy May Day
