The Socialist Workers Party and its candidates for public office invite you to join us and thousands of other working people and youth at International Workers Day actions May 1.
May Day — which was revived in the U.S. in 2006 when almost 2 million immigrant workers and others took to the streets and went on strike to oppose deportations and anti-immigrant legislation — will be an opportunity for those fighting against attacks by the bosses as well as immigrant workers looking to live and work in the U.S. free from threat of deportation to join together in common action. We are inspired by the fierce resistance put up by the people of Ukraine to Putin’s invasion.
We join in solidarity with those standing up and fighting, like members of the United Mine Workers union in Alabama who have been on strike for over a year and workers fighting for a union at Amazon in Staten Island, New York, and others around the world.
Join Socialist Workers Party candidates campaigning at May Day actions, promoting a class-struggle road of uniting workers and farmers, no matter where we were born. We will call for amnesty for the more than 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S.
We will explain that working people need to break from the Democrats and Republicans — the bosses’ twin parties — and forge our own party, a labor party based on a fighting union movement, to fight more effectively today and set out on a course to take political power into our own hands.
We will point to the example and accomplishments of Cuban workers and farmers, who made the first socialist revolution in our hemisphere and have defended it for over 60 years against Washington’s assaults.
We will encourage all those we meet to subscribe to the Militant newsweekly, to get books by leaders of the party and other revolutionaries that contain the program and lessons of Marxism, and to contribute to the Militant Fighting Fund to assure the paper keeps coming out.

MAY 1: DEMAND AMNESTY FOR IMMIGRANT WORKERS
There are more than 11 million immigrant workers in the U.S. without official work permits. As inflation soars, bosses are imposing speedup on the job and disregard for unsafe work conditions, and cutting benefits, while seeking to widen divisions between U.S. and foreign-born workers to weaken our fighting capacity. The Socialist Workers Party and its candidates encourage you to join them on May 1 at International Workers Day events to demand amnesty for these fellow workers and call for solidarity with labor battles — from the UMWA miners on strike at Warrior Met Coal to workers at Amazon fighting for a union.
