May Day or International Workers’ Day or Labour Day is celebrated on 1st May 2014 all over the world.
It originated in the late 19th century when the working class was in constant struggle to gain the 8-hour work day.
In those days, the working conditions were severe and people used to work 10 to 16 hours a day in unsafe conditions.
In a proclamation printed just before May 1, 1886, one publisher appealed to working people with this plea:
- Workingmen to Arms!
- War to the Palace, Peace to the Cottage, and Death to LUXURIOUS IDLENESS.
- The wage system is the only cause of the World’s misery. It is supported by the rich classes, and to destroy it, they must be either made to work or DIE.
- One pound of DYNAMITE is better than a bushel of BALLOTS!
- MAKE YOUR DEMAND FOR EIGHT HOURS with weapons in your hands to meet the capitalistic bloodhounds, police, and militia in proper manner.
More than 3 lakh workers in 13,000 businesses across US walked off their jobs on 1st May Day celebration in history. Parades, bands and 10,000 demonstrators in the streets showed their workers’ strength and unity.
More than a lakh workers continued to walk off their jobs until the next 2 days.
Over 100 years have passed since that first May Day and till date people are still struggling for justice to make better conditions for laborforce. This day is commemoration of the lakhs of people’s sacrifices that cannot be forgotten and that is why we still celebrate May Day or Labour Day or International Workers’ Day.
