Join us on Radio Jornalera on May 1. Angela Sanbrano and Jose Calderon will be part of the slot from 5pm-6pm “Historia del Primero de Mayo” Dolores Huerta is going to participate at 12 noon.
Enough. This country has accepted our labor. Today, it must accept our humanity. This May Day, join us on Radio Jornalera to celebrate our creative resistance to trumpism and to champion all workers, everywhere.
Today, it is clear that immigrant workers – in every industry and state – are essential parts of our communities, and of our economy. We don’t just contribute, we subsidize US industries, with our labor, with our poverty, with our health, with our lives. While millions are safe at home, we are out working.
So on May 1 this year, we say, basta. If you take our labor, you must accept our right to emergency aid, to health, to safe workplaces, and to legal personhood. That means relief from COVID-19. That means amnesty. No excuses.
On May Day, our own Radio Jornalera will provide live coverage all day of the many actions taking place to champion #WorkerMigrantJustice with voices from across borders, with the irresistible music, arts, and actions.
Throughout the day, we will be joined by the Essential and Excluded Caravans taking place across the US, by Los Jornaleros del Norte, and be hosting live discussions with special guests and workers rights leaders from Chile, Cuba, Guatemala, El Salvador and Mexico.
Tune in to Radio Jornalera, and join us demanding justice for all essential and excluded workers. Because the greatest threat to trumpism is the clarity and conviction of our dignity and human rights. On May Day, that is the conviction we will build on, from the bottom up.
