The City Belongs To Its Workers – May Day 2014

*

Thousands of New York city’s workers filled the sidewalks on Broadway next to City Hall. The weather was sublime and the spirit exuberant as the working class of New York claimed the day as theirs. 

May Day, the international workers holiday, was born in the USA in the struggle for an eight-hour work day. For many years, it was ignored or red-baited out of the consciousness of America’s working people. But it’s back and the pride and militancy of today’s rally was palpable.

    That first picture saying ‘capitalism’ is incorrect. Having too-big-to-fail banks is NOT capitalism, it is crony capitalism, corporatism.

    I do find it strange that mostly black/brown people are incarcerated and executed in the United States.
