May Day Of Action (Kitchener-Waterloo)
On Tuesday May 1st, you are invited to take part in a day of celebration and action, beginning at Victoria Park in Kitchener and, after a march, ending at Speaker’s Corner. We are calling on the people of Kitchener-Waterloo to join people from around the world to reclaim public space, demonstrate and to share their collective desire for a better world - one of dignity and justice for all!
Recently the voices of local people and the people of Ontario (and all those in the struggle against injustice everywhere) are pronouncing; “this is not a protest, this is a process!” On May 1st, every continent, every country and every city will stand up!
About May Day:
Schedule of Events:
From 3pm to 5pm, we invite you to join us in Victoria Park for 2 hours of collaborative healing, resilience, and creative resistance.
Feel free to bring musical instruments, noisemakers, sports equipment, banner/sign making ideas (and supplies if you like!)… get creative, bring ideas, or gather with others and plan something!
Shortly after 5pm, following brief speeches and announcements from local community organizers, we will march through Kitchener streets on route to Speakers’ Corner (Frederick/King Street Intersection). During this hour long march/bike ride, we will chant, sing, and dance, as we pass by historical relics from Kitchener’s rich working class history, and reflect on how quickly development is going on around all of us. We will pass through neighborhoods deeply impacted by these sudden changes and let our voices be heard in demanding affordable housing, and a right to choose how we live in our own communities. This will also be our chance to let all institutions, public, or private, know that we demand workers’ rights for all, whether in the home or in the workplace, waged, or unwaged, documented, or undocumented! We will highlight the links of workers' struggles to other campaigns for social justice for all, in recognition that our strength comes in our unity.
At roughly 6pm, we’ll arrive at Speakers’ Corner for a rally featuring local speakers and musicians! Let’s bring the noise and festive attitude, and let all those passing by share in our message of May Day!
What are we demanding?
Respect, dignity, and democracy in the workplace, for waged and unwaged workers!
And more, so clear your schedule on May 1st, and have your say Kitchener/Waterloo!
PLEASE SHARE WIDELY VIA EMAIL, PHONE, SOCIAL MEDIA, AND WORD OF MOUTH!
