Happy May Day tender comrades!
Here is a repost of our May Day episode from 2021. In it, Bob and Scott talk about the history of May Day from pagan rituals to the Haymarket Affair to International Workers' Day to Labor Day and Loyalty Day. And we discuss how the ruling class's "war on the left" fits into the politics of May Day vs. Labor Day.
Spend an hour of your International Workers' Day weekend hearing about the history of May Day. You won't regret it.
