Reviving Radical Roots
M A Y D A Y 2 0 0 3

The first of May is the international day of struggle for working people throughout the world. Hundreds of thousands of people across the world have fought together for many of the basic freedoms we enjoy today.

The holiday began in the U.S. in the 1880s around the struggle for an eight-hour workday. Ironically, the U.S. is now one of the
only countries in which May Day is not recognized or widely celebrated. This history of people fighting together has been all but erased from the memory of this country. We want to reinvigorate this tradition by resisting attempts to take the power and vitality out of our communities. We want to revive the radical roots that grew these struggles and the collective spirit to fight them.
