May Day 2019: One and Only One Working Class!

Since the 1889 Congress of the Workers International, the 1st of May has been the international day of the workers’ struggle, in honour of the Chicago martyrs, that is, the U.S. workers who had been executed for having fought for an eight-hour workday. One hundred and thirty years later, throughout the world, workers still mobilise on this day against that same capitalist system of warmongering and exploitation. They mobilise for their demands, with their organisations and under one and the same red flag.

We would like to warmly thank the International Workers Committee correspondents in twenty-five countries who have contributed to this report.
