Plant Shopping Center

Together with the world and together with the national call for a
strike! The San Fernando Valley will respond to the call to take the
streets and in the spirit of the Workers that originally led the fight
that created May Day we will raise our voices in unity and say we
REFUSE to accept Fascism and the continual war on colonized and oppressed communities!
On May 1, 1886, more than 300,000 workers in 13,000 businesses across the United States walked off their jobs in the first May Day celebration in history. In Chicago, the epicenter for the 8-hour day agitators, 40,000 went out on strike with the anarchists in the forefront of the public's eye.
Today we see tens of thousands of activists embracing the ideals of the Haymarket Martyrs and those who established May Day as an International Workers' Day. Ironically, May Day is an official holiday in 66 countries and unofficially celebrated in many more, but rarely is it recognized in this country where it began.
We can build a strong movement that can change reality and build a better future and to get that's started we answer the call of
International Workers Day and commemorate it in our very own
