maydaytoronto.org

Every year on May 1st grassroots organizations in Toronto rally and march to mark International Worker’s Day, for migrant and worker’s rights and in support of Indigenous people’s struggles. Themed around the most pressing issues of the day and committed to people’s struggles against oppression and exploitation, May Day unites people’s struggles for self-determination and liberation. We continue this tradition in 2016, rallying and marching against colonial and capitalist attacks on our communities here and Canadian imperialism’s plunder and attacks on peoples across the world.

This year, May Day organizing seeks to highlight the struggles of resistance to anti-black racism, police brutality, and issues deeply affecting black communities. All themes will center these struggles:

– Indigenous Sovereignty and Self-determination
– Migrant workers’ struggle against border imperialism
– Gender Justice
– Anti-poverty and anti-austerity organizing
– Police brutality
– Environmental Justice
– Militant rank and file labour movement struggles
– Solidarity with working-class struggle globally

#blacklivesmatter

We will begin with an opening ceremony given by Wanda Whitebird
