Celebrate May Day and strategize for the coming months with the Freedom Socialist Party

On May 1, Freedom Socialist Party members will take part in the immigrant-led general strike and will march side by side with other workers and oppressed people determined to bring to birth a new and better world. And, through the month of May, FSP branches will be holding public events discussing how fighters for that brighter future can best organize to achieve that goal. Let’s tackle this together! Get in touch if you would like to link up for May Day, RSVP for one of FSP’s events, or get together and talk.

May Day

Los Angeles

Join a revolutionary socialist feminist contingent for the May Day general strike! Meet at 10:00am at the SW corner of West Olympic and South Broadway.

Defend labor, immigrant and civil rights and raise these demands:

  • Stop the war against working people at home and abroad!
  • Open the borders! Legalization for all!
  • Stop deportations and ICE raids!
  • Money for social needs, not warfare, walls or a police state!
  • Preserve and extend DACA!
  • Dump the Democrat and Republican parties: build an anti-capitalist labor party!
  • Sanctuary and shelter for all!
