Happy May Day, International Workers' Day to one and all! And yes, that includes people out of a job, injured workers, those retired and otherwise not actively working. We remember the Haymarket martyrs of Chicago http://rabble.ca/babble/news-rest-us/mayday-look-back and all the other martyrs of working-class struggles throughout the world.
We also celebrate our victories. And not only organize unions as we always have, but struggle to find new ways of organizing in a worldwide labour market which is more and more precarious and means more and more of us in "atypical" or precarious work.
Here in Québec, there is a call for "Grève sociale", social strike, with many actions to spotlight and unify a broad range of demands by unions, popular associations and social movements.
