International Workers Day marked in Chicago
May 2, 2018, Chicago. IL - The meeting room at the United Electrical workers building in Chicago rang with song, as 60 working people of all nationalities and backgrounds - Black, Chicano, Mexicano, Honduran, Filipino, Puerto Rican, Asian, and white - gathered together to celebrate International Workers Day. Sponsored by Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO), the crowd was made up of fighters from the many battle lines in the class struggle and the national liberation movements.
No gathering to celebrate the class struggle here would be complete without the red shirted Chicago Teachers Union. Maria Moreno, Financial Secretary of CTU Local 1 spoke about their history of struggle, and the wave of teachers strikes across the country.
Also at the gathering were a number of workers, including warehouse workers from Amazon and UPS, as well as UPS drivers. Daniel Ginsberg, a rank-and-file leader in Teamsters Local 705, and also a member of FRSO, explained that class struggle unionism is needed to defeat the bosses’ war against workers. Another UPS truck driver, Benjamin James Cline, led the room in singing Solidarity Forever.
Byron Sigcho of the Pilsen Alliance, a community organization in the Chicano and Mexicano immigrant community near downtown Chicago, agitated the crowd to fight racist attacks on Blacks and Latinos; to demand rent control for low-income workers; and to stand up to the police and support the elected, civilian police accountability council put forward by the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression. “We must combat racism with socialism!”
Chicago Alliance and FRSO member, Yahama Tunson, performed a poem inspired by FRSO’s newspaper, Fight Back!. And finally, Honduran revolutionary singer, Karla Lara, helped lead the singing of the International, the hymn of the working class sung all over the world and in every language on this day. The room sang along in English, Spanish and Filipino.
"Support Bill Ayers"
In October 2008, several thousand college professors, students and academic staff signed a statement Support Bill Ayers in solidarity with former Weather Underground Organization terrorist Bill Ayers.
In the run up to the U.S. presidential elections, Ayers had come under considerable media scrutiny, sparked by his relationship to presidential candidate Barack Obama.
- We write to support our colleague Professor William Ayers, Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago, who is currently under determined and sustained political attack...
- We, the undersigned, stand on the side of education as an enterprise devoted to human inquiry, enlightenment, and liberation. We oppose the demonization of Professor William Ayers.
Daniel Ginsberg-Jaeckle of SDS-Milwaukee signed the statement.
