S.T.A.T.U.S. is a coalition of community-based organizations in the
Vancouver area belonging to movements and struggles of the people of the
Global South (Asia, Africa, Central and South America, Middle East, the
Caribbean region) and the struggles of such migrant communities in

On April 29th, 2006 we invite you to join us in remembering the history of
May Day and celebrating the struggles of workers around the world, and in
particular highlighting the struggles of migrant labour and immigrant
and non-status workers in North America.

From the 1886 strikes for the eight hour day to the mobilization of
hundreds of thousands in the Global South demanding "WTO out!", from the
Haymarket Five to the cries of migrant farm workers and sweat-shop
labourers in North America demanding an end to wage-slave labour - May
Day has become an international day of solidarity between workers.

As colonial projects of the past are carried forward through neo-liberal
policies of the present, the attacks on workers of the Global South and
migrant workers in the North continue to escalate. Modern day slavery
continues through multi-national run sweatshops from South Asia to New
York. Farmers are displaced from their lands in Latin America by free
trade agreements to the fields of the North where they continue to be
exploited through Seasonal Agricultural Worker Programs. Since the days of
the Chinese workers building the Railroad, non-status workers in Canada
continue to fuel the economy by serving as a hyper-exploitable pool of
labour with no rights to services, no ability to assert the right to
minimum-wage, or any other forms of labour protection. Immigrant workers,
particularly immigrant women, in North America continue to face conditions
of deskilling and racism in the workforce leading to an
over-representation in non-unionized, temporary, low-income jobs in the
service sector and garment industry.

Let us share these histories and build solidarity for the future...
