Lining up for May Day march in NYC.

New York, NY – Around 500 people were gathered around the fountain of Washington Square Park on May 1 to celebrate International Workers’ Day. The first of several events throughout the city, this one was led by several different unions, such as the Teamsters Local 804, and organizations such as DecrimNY.

People gathered at 10 a.m. to give a round of speeches calling for workers and immigrant rights, and to support ongoing strikes.

The activists began marching downtown later in the morning, chanting loudly and proudly workers’ rights slogans.
