May Day 8-page greetings supplement
International Workers' Day marks the first US-wide general strike that took place on 1 May 1886 and commemorates the Haymarket Martyrs killed in Chicago by the police.
Their strike demanded an eight hour maximum working day. Today, we still have to fight for decent jobs, working hours, conditions and public services, as the capitalists worldwide try to make working and poor people pay for their economic crisis.
International solidarity is vital in fighting for a socialist alternative to the failed capitalist system.
May Day greetings show solidarity while helping to fund the Socialist.
This year there is a record eight pages of May Day messages, reflecting the growing fightback and support for the paper that fights all cuts.
