DSA Puts Its Members Into the Streets for May Day

Web-DSA-May-Day-3.pngHave you seen this video? Fifty Movimiento Cosecha allies, including DSA members, shut down the South Bay detention center in Boston in support of immigrant workers going on strike on May 1st. And there's more to come.

DSA has endorsed Movimiento Cosecha’s call for a Día Sin Inmigrantes (Day Without Immigrants) on May 1.DSA local groups from New York to California have been working with them and other immigrants’ rights group active in their communities. You can look up your local DSA group here to find out what May Day activities they’re planning.
Join DSA and the growing immigrant strike movement May 1 for what promises to be the biggest workers’ strike in over a decade! Organizers from Movimiento Cosecha have said that more than 400,000 workers have committed to strike.
Los Angeles County DSA stands up for workers' rights.

As socialists, we know that immigrants' rights and labor rights are intertwined. Check out our DSA May Day page to learn more. You can join in the massive strikes, boycotts, and other actions beginning May 1st. You can help from home too. Donate to support Movimiento Cosecha’s Día Sin Inmigrantes here.
And May 1st is just the beginning. There will be ongoing actions, so keep checking the DSA and Movimiento Cosecha strike websites for more updates.
Working together, we fight back — against the ban and against the wall, and move forward for us all. Sí, se puede!
In solidarity,
Maria Svart, DSA National Director
