May 1st is the revolutionary holiday. The day when people come together around the tortured planet, and declare their determination to end exploitation and all forms of oppression by making revolution.
May 1st is not a day to beg those who rule over us to stop treating us as less than human beings. May 1st is a day to stand up and struggle against that system, to say that we do not accept slavery in any form. Its the day to expess resistance as part of a movement for revolution.
In particular, we call on people to join the campaign and help get out the RCP's message and call on the revolution we need, the leadership we have.
