May First: Workers’ Day or Día del Trabajo.

(San Francisco) – To celebrate and promote workers’ rights on May 1st., several marches have been organized around the San Francisco Bay Area. Some of them may be disruptive. Other marches or public events may not. One hopes that people are able to raise awareness about economic disparities while maintaining a level of peace and dialogue. Happy International Workers Day!

Para celebrar y promover los derechos de los trabajadores el Primero de Mayo, que en México y otros países es el Día del Trabajo, varias marchas, protestas, y eventos públicos se realizarán en el área de la Bahía de San Francisco. Algunos prometen interrumpir las actividades usuales y otros serán motivo de reunión comunitaria festiva. Lo que uno espera es que se logre despertar conciencia sobre las disparidades económicas que prevalecen en esta área, mediante el uso de la paz y la conciencia.


Según Wikipedia -orgullosamente my source today: “IWD or Labour Day is a celebration in the US promoted by the international labor movement, anarchists, socialists, and communists, and occurs every year on May Day -the First of May, an ancient European spring holiday. The date was chosen for international Worker’s Day by the Second International to commemorate the Haymarket affair, which occurred in Chicago on 4 May 1886.”
