Every year on May 1st grassroots organizations in Toronto rally and march to mark International Worker’s Day, for migrant and worker’s rights and in support of Indigenous people’s struggles. Themed around the most pressing issues of the day and committed to people’s struggles against oppression and exploitation, May Day unites people’s struggles for self-determination and liberation. We continue this tradition in 2015, rallying and marching against colonial and capitalist attacks on our communities here and Canadian imperialism’s plunder and attacks on peoples across the world.


Specifically, this year, our May Day organizing seeks to highlight struggles around the following eight themes:
  1. Indigenous sovereignty and self-determination;
  2. Migrant workers' resistance to border imperialism;
  3. Solidarity with working class struggle globally;
  4. Anti-poverty and anti-austerity organizing;
  5. Student strikes and academic labour battles against neoliberalization;
  6. Environmental Justice;
  7. Militant rank and file labour movements;
  8. Gender Justice
