Join the annual Detroit May Day rally/speak out and march in honor of international workers day.
There will be speakers addressing the most important labor, immigrant and antiracist struggles taking place in Detroit and throughout the world.
At present the Detroit City Council is deliberating over a budget which does not reflect the interests of residents who are overwhelmingly African American, Latin American and other people of color. Inflation is already at 8% impacting the ability of working people to purchase fuel, food, housing, healthcare, transportation, water, utilities and other essentials of life.
Over the last year workers across the U.S. have been striking for better wages and for recognition as collective bargaining units. Police violence has escalated against people of color communities compounding the repressive character of U.S. society.
While at the same time, there is an escalation of the Pentagon war machine seeking to expand NATO in Eastern Europe and ignite further military conflicts in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
On May 1, 2022, there will be a May Day rally/speak out and march beginning at Grand Circus Park located on Woodward Avenue and Adams at the Hazen Pingree Statue
