[Poster to the right, about workers' action planned in Wisconsin in support of international solidarity, and immigrant and workers rights.]
May 1st, International Workers’ Day, is the global day of unity and protest by workers against the tyranny and inequality of capitalist system. This day is a reminder of the global struggles by workers for achieving their human rights. Iranian workers celebrate this day alongside workers of the world, and, in protest against their inhumane living conditions, they get together on this day every year and by any means at hand they raise their voices in order to achieve their legitimate rights.
