Worker struggles require unity. They're also about  staying free "from the political parties, trade unions, and organizations of the upper middle class, which subordinate it to the profit interests of the capitalist class."

He and running mate Phyllis Scherrer aren't running so much to win. There campaign is about "building a new revolutionary leadership to give voice to the masses of working people who are ignored by this corporate-controlled political system."

"(S)ocial equality, peace and the democratic control of the economy" is only possible through global worker unity against the profit driven system. It's predatory, corrupt and destructive.

 

May Day advances that core theme. Confronting America's ruling class is central. Words engraved on Chicago's Haymarket Monument read:

"The day will come when our silence will be more powerful than the voices you are throttling today."
 

Haymarket Square protest organizers are heros. Those who died then are martyrs. Reviving their radicalism is vital. May Day sounds the call. Perhaps this year's will be loudest.
