Labor and Community Spring Offensive! Celebrate International Workers Day

It is very exciting that many unions, community groups and individuals are joining together this spring to organize on behalf of the 99% for the future of our country.  The deaths of Trayvon Martin and many others to racial profiling and violence highlight the urgency of economic justice, equality and peace.

As a part of this great effort, the People's World in Connecticut is hosting its annual celebration of International Workers Day on Sunday, May 6 at 4:00 pm at the Peoples Center, 37 Howe Street, New Haven. Please mark your calendar and help make the day a big success.

The program will include a slide show of May Day Around the World and solidarity messages from Connecticut workers resisting corporate greed on strike, in contract negotiations or organizing drives

A Labor-Community Organizing panel will place experiences in the on-going struggles for jobs and union rights, ending racial profiling and attacks on women, ending the wars and taxing the 1% into the context of the 2012 elections.

Music performances will inspire and unite us. A home made buffet and a raffle will round out the family day. Tickets are $5 or what you can afford. No one will be turned away.

The celebration /rally is a fund raiser toward the annual $10,000 People's World Connecticut fund drive goal to keep the paper's working class news and views going and growing.  Donations large and small will be welcomed and appreciated.

Don't miss Sunday, May 6 at 4 pm at 37 Howe Street in New Haven. To reserve tickets or for information  e-mail: or call 203-624-8664.
