This May Day: Land, Food Workers and the Commons

Traditionally May 1st has been a day to recognize worker contributions and advocate for better rights. Today thousands, maybe millions will take to the street worldwide to take a stand for workers, just as workers did in 1886 in Chicago.

Workers, particularly food and agricultural workers cannot be removed from the conversation of land access and the commons.

This May Day we forge onwards into a future of shared resources and land and support the workers past and present who got us there. Find a march here or in your town.

See you on the streets!
