May Day

Eric Drooker

May Day is International Workers’ Day, a time of celebration
and opposition throughout the world, except in the United
States where it began. May Day commemorates the May 1, 1886
nationwide protest for the eight-hour day and the following
“Haymarket Affair,” a pivotal event in the history of workers’
and anarchist movements in which four labor organizers were
hanged by the State in Chicago. May Day is also the ancient
celebration of Spring and rebirth—the traditional time for
planting new seeds in old ground.

Printed at C & D Printshop, Chicago, IL.

This is #2 in the Celebrate People’s History Poster Series.
