Symbolic May Day Rally in Miami Unites Diverse Groups for Workers Rights
On Sunday, April 30th, activists from a variety of South Florida progressive political organizations rallied at Miami’s Torch of Friendship to unite different factions of the community in a symbolic May Day rally. Rally organizers put forward demands calling for: amnesty for all immigrants; a stop to the unjust wars and occupations in Iraq and the Middle East; a halt to war moves against Iran; money for human needs, not wars and occupations; and a living wage and healthcare or all working people.

According to Michael Martinez of the Bolivarian Youth Movement, the demand a living wage and healthcare for all working people, is especially important in light of rising gasoline prices which make it more difficult for people to get to jobs that increasingly don't even pay enough for necessities.
