The government in Washington and the billionaire class are leading a generalized assault on our lives, rights, and living conditions. The leading edge of this assault today is the stepped-up attacks against migrants. Deportations are accelerating. The war on the poor continues. Student debt stands at over a trillion dollars! As US wars have created massive debt and refugees internationally, the consequences of corporate greed at home have created refugees within our own borders. The recent tax cuts for the rich will be at the expense of our living standards. Get ready for more cuts in affordable housing, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and education. Millions of youth and decent hardworking people are under attack! Join us on May Day where our program will address: Migration, Labor Rights, Systemic Oppression, Threats to Human Survival, and the role of capitalism in the current crisis.
