May Day, also known as International Workers’ Day, celebrates workers of the world.
This year, on May 1st, Democratic Socialists of America stand in solidarity with Movimiento Cosecha, a nonviolent movement fighting for permanent protection, dignity, and respect for the millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States.
Millions of workers around the world take to the streets to demand higher wages, better benefits and improved working conditions each year on May Day.
Labor and immigrant rights movements have become increasingly linked in this struggle as working people learn over and over again that when we are divided, we are weaker, but when we team up and unite in one struggle, we are stronger in standing up to bosses and the billionaire class.
Since 2001, American unions and immigrant rights activists have resurrected May 1 as a day of protest around both workers rights and immigrant rights.
The movement has been gaining momentum, enlisting more and more young immigrants and children of immigrants, called Dreamers, in the struggle for comprehensive immigration reform, which would bring many of the estimated 11 million living in the U.S. illegally out of the shadows.
