May Day March & Rally for International Workers’ Day


    No Walls, No Bans, No Detentions, Full Education and Jobs, Full Respect for Women’s Rights, No Wars form the core of demands on May Day, the National Day for Immigrant and Worker Rights

    Tucson – On Monday, May 1, 2017, our local communities will come together to join with the millions of workers, students, and families across the country on this historic National March and Rally for Immigrant and Worker Rights to say “Ya Basta!”
    We will not work, we will not open our businesses, we will not go to school, and we will not buy anything! We are all human, and we demand respect, dignity and full rights. We will not participate in wars against poor people, whether here or abroad.
    At 8:30 AM, our march will gather at the historic El Casino Ballroom in South Tucson, and proceed to march to Armory Park, where music, poets, dance, and speakers will make the CALL TO ACTION to build a movement of resistance.
    We invite the Tucson and southern Arizona community to join us on this International Day honoring the worker, especially under the current political attacks on women, workers, students, migrants, Muslims, the environment, and almost every right we hold important. Join us!
    WHEN: May 1, 2017, 8:30 AM to gather, march at 9:30 AM
    WHERE: El Casino Ballroom, 26th St and 3rd Ave., in So. Tucson
    PROCEED TO: Armory Park, expected arrival time 11 AM”
