May Day (or International Worker's Day) began as a way to remember the events of the Haymarket Massacre in Chicago 1886. At the Haymarket Massacre, workers took the streets striking for 8-hour workdays until the police violently suppresed the rally. Police violence and state oppression over the rise of the working class continue to exist to this day. May Day remains a day that remembers those who have fought for the liberation of workers but continue to fight until the end of capitalism.
On May 1, we are gathering at the vigil for Errol Greene at 4:30PM in front of the Remand Centre. Event page: facebook.com/events/1058429117596007??ti=ia
Afterwards starting at 5:30PM, we will march towards the Winnipeg Labour Council march as a anti-capitalist anti-colonial contingent, taking the streets with our banners and flags.
Join our public banner making session on April 29 at 2PM at the Hive (UWinnipeg). Event page to follow.
The event is organized by members of the Winnipeg community who uphold principles of anti-capitalism, anti-imperialism, and are against Canadian imperialism and settler-colonialism. We do not support the presence of police, or the protection of correctional officers that have enacted and continue to pursue violence for the capitalist state. The liberation of the working class and marginalized will never come from the «protection» of the police because the only thing that the police protects is white supremacy, capitalism, and colonialism.
Organized by the following:
Anti-Capitalist May Day Organizing Committee
Fascist-Free Treaty 1
Justice for Errol Greene
Organizing Committee of the Revolutionary Communist Party
Serve the People — Winnipeg
Workers of the world, UNITE against colonialism, imperialism, capitalism, and fascism!
