This week commemorates the anniversary of the Haymarket Affair, International Workers' Day, and the claimed birthday of Mother Mary Harris Jones. While the United States' official Labour Day falls in September, the international community celebrates workers and workers rights on May 1st, in recognition of actions taken by Americans in 1886, and the events that led up to the Haymarket Massacre.
