In the United States since 2006, May Day has been a day to take action for immigrant rights. Internationally, it has been a day to recognize workers’ rights. Recently the two have merged with the realization that we need both political and economic rights to achieve justice. This year the coalition has expanded to include the Sonoma County Tenants’ Union and the launching of their membership drive. May Day will be a day to celebrate community. The importance of the day was most articulately stated by the historian Howard Zinn:
“The really critical thing isn’t who is sitting in the White House, but who is sitting in – in the streets, in the cafeterias, in the halls of government, in the factories. Who is protesting, who is occupying offices and demonstrating. Those are the things that determine what happens.”
