Why We Strike, Why We March

International Workers’ Day has been a time to uplift the struggles, honor the sacrifices, and celebrate the triumphs of working people across the world. As we stand on Ohlone Indigenous land this May 1st, we march in celebration and in resistance with our families, friends, neighbors, and co-workers in our communities, and in solidarity with working people across all borders, to continue the historic struggle against economic and social inequity. With a Trump administration in power, a rising fascist tendency, and growing economic and political oppression of people everywhere, this May Day we march in the spirit of organizing and defending our communities from state violence and toward liberation and self-determination. You can read the full text of our Points of Unity online here.

To make this mobilization one that goes down in the hxstory books, we must leverage people power and broad based support.  There are many ways to get involved in this year’s march; taking part in outreach, volunteering on May 1st for security or other roles, donating money, or approaching organizations to endorse this march.  If you want to get involved, email oaklandmayday@googlegroups.com. You can also visit the event website at oaklandsinfronteras.wordpress.com.

Donations

We encourage anyone able to, to make a financial contribution to support the event. Donations will go toward making sure we have all the materials necessary to carry out this mobilization in a safe and organized way.  We do NOT have any budget for food, drinks and other materials, so we are relying on the generosity of our community. Donations can be made out to “Mujeres Unidas y Activas” with “Oakland Sin Fronteras” in the memo line and mailed to MUA at 3543 18th St #23, San Francisco, CA 94110.

In solidarity,

Oakland Sin Fronteras
