With just two weeks before May Day, The Labor Forum speaks with organizers in Atlanta, Roanoke, Va and the Triangle cities of Durham, Raleigh and Chapel Hill, NC to hear about their plans and why May day is important.
Beginning at 4:15, Ga Latino Alliance for Human Rights leader, Adelina Nichols will detail the actions scheduled for Atlanta on Monday, May 1.
Then Shelea Haskins from Roanoke and Manzoor Cheema from the Triangle will call in and describe what will be happening in their cities.
The struggle for the 8 hour day in the US is the impetus for what is now an internationally recognized day dedicated to worker solidarity in the fight for social and economic justice. The current vicious attacks on workers’ rights are fueling greater participation in May Day in the US and strengthening class solidarity.
The Labor Forum airs every Monday from 4-5pm on WRFG 89.3FM. For additional information, http://www.wrfglaborforum.org
