Topic - May Day
May Day occurs on May 1st and refers to several public holidays. In many countries, May Day is synonymous with International Workers' Day, or Labour Day, a day of political demonstrations and celebrations organised by unions and other groups. May Day is also a traditional holiday in many cultures. - Source: Wikipedia
Sen. Dick Durbin joined thousands of union activists, anarchists and proud Marxists for a May Day rally Wednesday, speaking about the importance of immigration reform.
Demonstrators demanded an overhaul of immigration laws Wednesday in an annual, nationwide ritual that carried a special sense of urgency as Congress considers sweeping legislation that would bring many of the estimated 11 million people living in the U.S. illegally out of the shadows.
Over the last several years, May Day rallies in the United States have been dominated by activists pushing for a path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million people in the country illegally. But since 2006, when hundreds of thousands took to the streets in cities across America, the rallies have gotten smaller, less focused and increasingly splintered by any number of groups with a cause.

On the front lines of May Day protests this year, along with the traditional chants, banners and marches, a gamut of emotions flowed through the crowds.
Hundreds of activists across the U.S. joined the worldwide May Day protests on Tuesday, with Occupy protesters in several cities leading demonstrations against major financial institutions.
May 1 brought marches and rallies to commemorate International Workers' Day to nearly every corner of the globe. Yet even the left was unable to muster much enthusiasm for a socialist holiday that in the United States has morphed into an excuse to demand amnesty for those living and working in the country illegally. That's a message that few are buying when jobs are already in short supply.
