Spring has arrived, and that means that across the world anti-capitalists are preparing to mark International Workers Day, also known as May Day. Every year on May 1st, anti-capitalists of all stripes come together to remember both the red and green origins of May Day with events ranging from community socials and free meals to marches, strikes and direct action.
See below for a brief list of May Day events that have been publicly called for across southern Ontario. If we missed something, email us at northshore [at] riseup [dot] net and we will update this post. If you don’t see anything happening in your locality, consider getting together a few friends and starting a new tradition in your town — the secret is to begin. Afterwards, send us a reportback!
