Event Date: 
Sunday, May 1, 2011 - 1:30pm

May 1st is a day to celebrate working men and women across the world. Please join a Wisconsin May Day Rally and Solidarity March for Immigrant and Worker Rights. Union and community members will meet at 1:30 pm at 5th and Washington St. in Milwaukee, then march to Veteran’s Park (1010 N. Memorial Dr.) for a 3:00 pm rally with AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, Executive Director of Voces de la Frontera Christine Neumann-Ortiz, and student and union leaders. There will be live music!

Workers in Wisconsin are under attack. Jobs have been shipped overseas, wages and benefits have been slashed. Governor Walker and his supporters like the Koch brothers are trying to divide private sector workers against the public employees who serve them and American workers against their immigrant brothers and sisters. Workers didn’t ship our jobs overseas, cut our wages or take away our union rights. On Sunday May 1st, protesters will march in solidarity against the attacks on all of Wisconsin workers.
