On Sunday, May 1, 2011, at 12 noon, join several organizations as we begin our rally at Balboa Park
outside the Centro Cultural de la Raza (2004 Park Blvd. San Diego, 92101) and march to the Federal Building, from here we will march over to the Civic Center to join a May Day Labor solidarity event at 3pm.
On May 1, 1886, Chicago unionists, reformers, socialists, anarchists, and ordinary workers combined to make Chicago the center of the national movement for an eight-hour day. In the U.S. we must acknowledge the tragedy that took place in 1886, when workers were met by state violence and repression, because of the massive protest that were taking place for several days. Several workers would be killed and four were eventually hung in jail after an unjust trial.
On this historic day we will show unity with the workers of Wisconsin who are at the center of today's National Movement to protect the working class. In San Diego we must join in solidarity with the workers of Wisconsin and all workers across the world.
12:00 pm Rally on grass area outside of Centro Cultural de la Raza, 2004 Park Blvd.
1:00 pm March to Federal Building, 880 Front Street, San Diego
2:00 pm Rally in Front of Federal Building

A Play by HOWARD ZINN
Dramatic Reading of "Marx in Soho"
Sunday 7 pm May 1st
"Humorous and stimulating!"
Howard Zinn (1922-2010), author of the classic A People's History of the United States, wrote this play. In it Marx is back! The premise of this witty and insightful "play on history" is that Karl Marx has agitated with the authorities of the afterlife for a chance to clear his name. Through a bureaucratic error, though, Marx is sent to Soho in New York, rather than his old stomping ground in London, to make his case. Marx in Soho is a brilliant introduction to Marx's life, his class analysis of society, and his passion for radical change. Zinn also shows how Marx's ideas are relevant in today's world with capitalism in crisis and labor under attack and desperately needing to organize.
This event is sponsored by the International Museum of Human Rights at San Diego and endorsed by Activist San Diego, Amnesty International, and others.
