On May 1st the Working Class Takes the Streets!

This May Day in Sudbury, join us for a march, rally, and other festivities to demonstrate the power of the working class and renew our commitment to fighting for a new world, free of capitalist domination and all oppression!

WHEN: Sunday, May 1, 7pm

WHERE: Gather in parking lot of Food Basics, 400 Notre Dame Ave (look for the red flags)

All days of the year, workers everywhere rebel in a million small, usually isolated ways against unbearable conditions. But on May 1st, the International Day of the Working Class, we strive to unite our common struggles against the imperialist capitalist system and to empower our class, the mighty proletariat, to lead the way in rooting out all forms exploitation and oppression.

The streets of Sudbury have been quiet on May Day in recent years, but we have not forgotten how to struggle. For us, employed and unemployed workers, living in precarity and poverty, preyed on by cops and slumlords, taught mindless obedience at school, betrayed by bourgeois politicians, and turned against one-another by anti-people ideologies, each day is a struggle for survival. While we toil to make the world go round, the capitalists reap the rewards and call the shots. They make the wars, plunder stolen lands and subjugate Indigenous nations, batter us with austerity cuts, put us out of jobs and criminalize poverty. They deserve nothing, the people deserve everything!

On May 1st, as part of building a new class struggle in our city for the years to come, the Sudbury May Day Committee (SMDC) calls for united workers’ action under the banner of: Anti-capitalism and anti-imperialism ★ Solidarity with anti-colonial struggles of Indigenous peoples ★ Independence from capitalist power ★ International workers’ solidarity

Come fly your flags, bang your drums, and together take the streets in true proletarian style!
