Oakland May Day: March & Strike for Immigrant and Worker Rights


BoomShake will be Drumming and Chanting at the May Day March on May 1st, 2017. Supporting in the fight for migrant and worker justice!

In the Bay Area our communities face increased state and economic violence. Only by building a mass movement in the street that unites all of our struggles can we win our fight for justice and dignity.

Meet at Fruitvale Plaza at 3pm on May 1st
March to San Antonio Park


International Workers’ Day has been a time to uplift the struggles, honor the sacrifices, and celebrate the triumphs of working people across the world. As we stand on Ohlone Indigenous land this May 1st, we march in celebration and in resistance with our families, friends, neighbors, and co-workers in our communities, and in solidarity with working people across all borders, to continue the historic struggle against economic and social inequity. With a Trump administration in power, a rising fascist tendency, and growing economic and political oppression of people everywhere, this May Day we march in the spirit of ORGANIZING AND DEFENDING OUR COMMUNITIES from state violence and capitalist exploitation, and toward liberation and self-determination.
