Encouragement From the Phoenix May Day Action Committee to Organize A May to Remember, Strike Everywhere
Hello friends across the states and throughout the world, we are writing to you from Phoenix Arizona, you may know us from our cactus, reactionary politicians, union busting laws and lack of seasons.
Twelve years ago anarchists, activists and many unaffiliated folks got together to plan the first May Day demonstration in Phoenix since the early 20th century. That organizing, which was open to anyone and uncompromising in its revolutionary language, helped shape a new kind of politics in Phoenix and Arizona that still exists today. We see the possibility, in organizing and planning for this May 1st, to accomplish the same thing, but this time on an even larger scale.
