“The people, united, will never be divided!” …is one chant of many that will be rise from May Day rallies and protests from major cities in all corners of the globe on May 1st, 2013. The people are tired of the normalization of horribly unjust social conditions, including crippling poverty and inequality, relentless warfare, mass incarceration, and other forms of systemic oppression. The people are tired of a repulsive system that generates massive amounts of wealth for few yet fails to meet basic human needs for so many more. The people are tired, we are indignant, and we are ready to fight for social change. I don’t want to live in a world where 1% of the population holds 40% of the world’s wealth. Where for every dollar of assets owned by a single black or Latina woman, a member of the Forbes 400 has 40 million dollars…a can of soup for a black or Latina woman, a mansion and a yacht for the businessmen. Where 44 of the world’s largest economic entities are corporations. Where CEO’s make 700 times more than their minimum wage employees. Do you? It’s impossible to discuss issues of universal health care (#Progress), environmental sustainability (#GREAN), gender equity (#QASU #PLUWomen’sCenter), equity between diverse peoples (#PLUDiversityCenter), and immigration reform (#LatinosUnidos #HB71) without addressing that these issues are fundamentally tied to global inequality and linked to global capitalism. We (students, immigrants, teachers, men, women, black, white, brown, young and old) are the workers and united, we hold the power, not Wall Street. We are daring to imagine a new socio-political and economic alternative that offers greater possibility of equality and democracy.
We are asking you to connect the dots. YOU have the potential to join in a chorus of voices speaking out to end this injustice on May 1st, 2013. May 1st is International Workers Day. Students of the Left is bringing May Day to campus and we have recognized you as a progressive leader on campus and ask you to join us. Here is our humble ask to you: 1. SPREAD THE WORD about May Day by emailing this document to all of your friends and family. There is power in unity. 2. REPLY TO THIS EMAIL with a simple YES email if you are interested in joining our cause. If you have more ideas, please share them! 3. COME TO OUR MEETING on Monday, 4/29 at 5:30pm in the 2nd floor of Hong (246 A) for planning and to learn about Students of the Left’s hopes of integrating progressive causes on campus together. 4. RALLY WITH US ON MAY 1ST. MEET in RED SQUARE @10:30. We will be marching a route around campus. Bring your cause and your slogan and your solidarity. Make a sign before or at the rally.
Thank you! We’ll see you there!
