No Bosses, No Borders: Into the Streets for Freedom for Immigrants & All Working People!
On International Workers Day, we call for people of Boston and greater New
England to take to the streets in opposition to capitalism. Capitalism is
the enemy of the worker, the enemy of the immigrant, the enemy of all
freedom loving people. We reject its wars, its governments, its
immigration laws, and its exploitation and degradation of life.
We stand for a world free of bosses and borders. One day we will abolish
them and seize control of our own lives, workplaces, and communities. In
the meantime, this May Day, we will take back the streets of this city and
stand in solidarity with the struggles of immigrant workers. We will make
anti-capitalist resistance visible again. We will give new life to the new
world that's in our own hearts and the hearts of working people

12:30 - Converge at Boston Common at Park & Tremont St
1:00 - Anti-Capitalist March through Downtown Boston
2:00 - Immigrant Rights Rally at Copley Place
5:00 - Benefit for ABC No Rio at 45 Mount Auburn St
11:00 - Reclaim the Streets in Harvard Square

Bring friends and lovers and fellow workers. Bring pots and pans, drums
and instruments, songs and banners and flags. Bring creativity and

History of Struggle

May Day was born in the struggles of workers here in America in 1886, when
general strikes broke out across the land and were met with bloody
repression - including the Haymarket Massacre in Chicago, followed by the
frameup and death sentences of anarchist labor organizers Parsons, Spies,
Fischer, Engel, Lingg, Fielden, Schwab and Neebe.

Every year since, workers all over the world have marked May Day with mass
mobilizations, work stoppages, and other direct actions. In the place
where it all began, the forces of reaction have done all they can to make
us forget. Yet we remember with our feet: We remember in the streets.

Boston and eastern Massachusetts has been a historic center of working
class resistance to tyranny and exploitation, from the Boston Tea Party to
the Bread & Roses Strike to community struggles against segregation,
gentrification and corporate invasion.

Join us in the streets of Boston as the Spirit of '76 and '86 rises again!

Called by BAAM* Boston. With solidarity & support from ACUB, Animal Defense
League, Black Radical Congress, La Rivolta, Mass Direct Action, Starbucks
Workers Union, Worcester Global Action Network, Workers Solidarity
Alliance, and others that do not wish to be named here.
* [Ed note: US, Boston, BAAM, is a general anarchist
union in the Boston area]
