Long time passing….. May Day has become nothing more than the 1st of May in many countries, Israel included. It was once the day the workers of the world took to the streets and demanded their rights…

Today, May 1st is the 123rd anniversary of the first May Day. A Holiday born in the United States of America, but officially celebrated in most countries EXCEPT the United States.
A day where the most progressive of the Union’s leadership would address the mass rallies of the workers. Pictured here is Henry Foner, addressing a May Day Rally in New York’s Union Square in 1952.
A Day that the government saw fit to ignore and to establish a different day for the Workers… a day in September called Labor Day. But, nothing can take away from the glorious history of May Day. It will continue to be celebrated throughout the world, including the U.S.of A.
It will be recognised by all who work for their wages… by all who want peace and justice in our world. In every nation by every race. No one can stop that.
So on that special day, remember those that struggled and gave their lives to make this a better place for all of us. In their memory continue that struggle till victory is won.
HAPPY HOLIDAY! and enjoy the following…
