Los Angeles May Day Picnic 2013

Los Angeles IWW General Defense Committee, Local 4, 1929
As a way to commemorate working class struggles across the world and support cultures of resistance here locally, the Ricardo Flores Magon IWW LA branch would like to invite everyone to a community picnic at MacArthur Park May 1st 2013 at 5:00 after the May Day march. Food will be served by our friends from Revolutionary Autonomous Communities (RAC) but we encourage everyone to bring a dish to share.

Please check back on our Facebook event page for updates and info as we get closer to May Day.

We hope that people bring their mindfulness of struggles here locally, across the world, and most importantly the ones we face in our day to day lives as a way to connect them historically to a tradition that dates back to 1884.

Early 1930's non-Stalinist Communists and Socialists organized a United Front to commemorate May Day
