Solidarity actions for May Day 2016

The gap between the rich and the poor in the world has further widened because of imperialist neoliberal policies. In the last eight years since the global financial and economic crisis erupted, the wealth generated by world’s working people has never grown as high in a short period, yet billions of people continue to live in abject poverty.

Imperialist governments, financial oligarchs, and monopoly-capitalists dominate the world’s economy.

There are around 63,000 multinational corporations, which control 2/3 of trade and 80% of investments in the world. More than 80 million workers are subject to their exploitation through global production, and this number does not even include the massive hidden workforce in their global value chains. [i]

These corporations are the major driving force in neoliberal policies of liberalization, deregulation, privatization, financialization and denationalization.

They have plundered resources causing economic displacement and environmental destruction.

Examples abound in which the revenue of a single multinational corporation exceeds the GDP of an entire country. The profits they amass can end global poverty many times over.

But the world’ working people remain poor, landless and suppressed.

Imperialist governments have invested in the military-industrial complex to prevent and stop social unrests and revolutions.
As May 1 or International Labor Day approaches, let us join together in coordinated activities to call for an end to neoliberal policies, and against imperialist wars.

Struggle against neoliberal policies!
No to imperialist exploitation and plunder of resources!
No to wars of aggression and all forms of reaction!

We would like to enjoin everyone – ILPS and non-ILPS members, workers, peasants, migrants, women, youth, indigenous people, and other formations to support any of the activities. Please suggest more issues and the actions we can do to support it.
