Friday May 1st is May Day -- an international day for celebrating workers, working class power and working class culture!

Workers produce everything that society needs! Everything we value in society is made by workers! On May Day, workers of the world stand up and take credit for everything we value as a society!

May Day is not sanctioned by the state or by business unions! This is our day and we struggle for it every year! Let's get together and sing songs about our struggles and workers' past struggles!

We've got some great folk songs and pop songs planned, and we'll have lyric sheets too, so we're hoping people will want to sing along! Here are some of the songs we're planning to cover:

Bread And Roses

Sixteen Tons


We Work The Black Seam

She Works Hard For The Money

Take This Job And Shove It

Blue Sky Mine


Which Side Are You On?

If you have a favourite song about workers you'd like to hear, let us now on FB!

Organizer:Rachael Charbonneau 705-670-1982

About the Sudbury Working Group

The Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op was formed to create independent media in the North, to speak to our issues and outlooks on our communities as well as the world around us. Independent media provides an avenue for people who are wishing to gain critical perspective on the issues that matter most to us, and to give a voice to those people and stories that you won't find in the mainstream media.
