Today is the International Labor Day…

Today (01) is International Labor Day – when all indigenous working people fight for their rights.

May 1, 1886, is designated as International Labor Day to commemorate the struggle of workers in Hemaquat Square in Chicago, USA, in May 1886, demanding that the working day be limited to eight hours.

Also, the red flag of the working people is symbolized in red, commemorating the march in which the workers who were killed in the police firing picked up their blood-soaked shirts and marched.

No matter how advanced the technology is, no matter how rich the world is, the living standards of working people are still very low. May Day symbolizes their continued struggle for a better standard of living.

Given the current political situation in Sri Lanka, the ruling Sri Lanka People’s Front (SLPP) will not hold a May Day rally as a party this year, while only the Samagi Jana Balawega will hold a May Day rally in Colombo among the other major parties.

The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) and the United National Party (UNP) have selected areas outside Colombo for the May Day celebrations this year.

Meanwhile, groups protesting against the President and the government occupying the Galle Face Green are also scheduled to hold a May Day rally at the venue.
