International Workers Day Celebration

International Workers Day Celebration

Celebrate International Workers Day at 4200 Cedar Avenue from 6 pm to 10 pm on Saturday, April 28. *Dinner will be provided* *Childcare will be provided*  

Join Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) in celebrating this year's most important working class holiday, International Workers' Day. On May 1st, workers around the world unite in rallying together and celebrating our shared history of struggle and our common interests as working people to fight against exploitation and capitalism. 2018 has already brought astounding fights to the fore, from transit workers threatening to strike during the Superbowl to West Virginia teachers striking statewide to win a fair contract. In the US and around the world, workers are engaged in tremendous battles against austerity and anti-union legislation aimed to limit the right to strike and to gut public sector unions. The capitalist class is united in rolling back the victories won through working class struggle and we need to be united in our resistance. On May Day we celebrate the shared struggles of our class, from the fight to jail killer cops and oppose racist policing to the movements to block U.S. imperialist aggression overseas and oppose Trump's anti-immigrant and anti-muslim attacks. Join us on April 28th for an evening of speeches by movement leaders, dinner and drinks! Then on May 1st, we will take the streets to march alongside immigrants and workers around the world.

Commemoration of the Nakba

Commemoration of the Nakba  – Nakba 2017 Video 1:00pm  at Bridge Square in Northfield on Saturday, May 16.

Losing the key to the house is a hassle.  But having the key and losing the house is a “catastrophe”.  This is the fate that befell the Palestinian people in the Nakba.

“Nakba” (catastrophe) refers to events in 1947-1948 that transpired when the British vacated Palestine and Israel became a state.  Told to vacate their home temporarily, Palestinian families packed a few belongs, locked their doors, secured their keys and moved as directed by Israeli troops.  More than 750,000 Palestinians left their homes and more than 400 villages were destroyed.  Families are left with their keys and their memories.  This “temporary” expulsion is 70 years old this year and the ethnic cleansing of Palestine continues today.

Please join us as we stand in solidarity with those who lost homes and villages.   We will name those more than 400 villages that were lost. Sponsored by Northfielders for Justice in Palestine/Israel
