International Workers Day (May Day) is a time for people to honor and extend the struggles of labor to protect its rights and defend social justice.  It is a time for all of us to realize our power to create a just society.

It is time to remember the great sit-down strike wave of 1937, civil rights demonstrations and anti-Vietnam War actions.  It is time to remember the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Over the past four decades economic policy has led to an unprecedented redistribution of income and wealth toward the richest 1%.  Recent Supreme Court decisions seem designed to transform the US to plutocratic rule.  Added wealth is going toward environmental destruction rather than fulfilling basic needs of working people.  International trade deals are intensifying these trends.  What can we do to reverse this bleak course and build a better world? How can people across the globe fight back against never ending war, rampant racism, economic collapse and environmental destruction?

If you can bring a salad or vegetable dish to donate to the dinner, call 314-727-8554.
