May Day

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.
