Welcome to the blog of the Global May Day 2019!.
The Global May Day aims to connect emancipatory May Day activities around the world. It was initiated by individuals organized with the Free Workers’ Union (FAU Hamburg), Industrial Workers of the World (IWW Gainesville and IWW Hamburg).
Furthermore Inter-Factory Workers’ Federation (FBLP, Jakarta), Bangladesh Anarcho-Syndicalist Federation (BASF), the Garment Workers’ Trade Union Centre (GWTUC, Bangladesh) and the Forum for IT Employees (FITE, India) were involved from the beginning. Check this link for the complete list of supporters until now.
The common global framework consists of these three elements:
- Call to Action (defining the common basis)
- Suggested symbols (visually connecting activities related to the call)
- Hashtag #1world1struggle (facilitating online communication)
Each syndicate/group/union organizes its activities with their own focus autonomously. This common framework will help to visually connect those activities and support communication on the global level. Feel free to subscribe and/or contact the Global May Day 2019 mailing list [firstname.lastname@example.org], if you support the call and/or want to connect with others to establish a solidarity partnership.
