Come out this May Day and stand united for social & economic justice. Together we can build a movement to take back our communities .

International Workers Day in 2015, we find ourselves facing unprecedented cuts to public services including education, street and park maintenance, social services, unemployment insurance, 27 wars of choice, mismanagement of health services, and much more. We see rapid increases in poverty including houselessness and food insecurity. We continue to experience attacks on people of color, immigrants, working families, women, students, everyday people and a right to organize.

It is time to organize and FIGHT BACK!!

People Over Profit !
You can pick up flyers at the AFSC building (2249 E Burnside St
Portland, OR) they will be on the porch in a purple bin or at the JWJ office (1500 NE Irving St #585)

We've also got some wonderful speakers and music. Great organizations will be tabling. And then we'll march along our route together yelling our chants, making our voices heard.

Friday- May 1st, 2015 at 2:00pm to 3:00pm

PSU Park Blocks

Portland, OR - Originally a celebration of the coming of summer, May Day became part of labor movement fighting for an eight-hour day in the 1800s. On this day, over a hundred years ago, workers organized to demand fair labor conditions. We continue to organize for fair labor and wage conditions. As we approach May Day in 2015, as a coalition we recognize how immigration status, race, ethnicity, gender identity, access to education, and other personal realities intersect and affect the way workers experience a range of injustices.

Allied with aforementioned organizations, The Portland State University Student Union will be holding a rally in the park blocks starting at 2:00pm in front of The Smith Memorial Student Union building. We encourage everyone to Rise Up In Solidarity for social & economic justice this May Day. In the wake of Baltimore's uprising after police killed Freddie Gray, there will be a special focus on militarization of university campus security officers (CPSO) at PSU. Students and faculty resisted and demonstrated against the CPSO deputization; their demands were ignored by the PSU Board of Trustees.

Together we can build a movement to take back our campuses and communities.

This year our call is to reflect on our differences, find common ground, and Rise Up In Solidarity!

Join us at 2:00pm in the PSU Park Blocks in front of the Smith Memorial Student Union building. This PSU rally will feed into the city-wide May Day event on SW Park & SW Salmon at 3:00pm.

In solidarity.
