Philadelphia street meeting promotes May Day 2017

Two weeks before May Day, May 1, a couple dozen Workers World activists and friends held a roving street meeting in Philadelphia to promote the Philadelphia People’s Defense Network and the call for a feeder march to join the “Day without Immigrant, Black and Brown Workers” rally at City Hall on May Day. The march stopped at two Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices, Wells Fargo and Santander banks, and ended at City Hall. Speakers warned businesses not to punish any workers who strike on May 1, or immigrant supporters will stage phone call campaigns, sit-ins, pickets or other actions to protect their fellow workers.
