International Workers' Day 1st May 2024


International Workers' Day, also known as Labour Day or May Day, is celebrated on May 1st each year. It commemorates the historic struggle of workers around the world for better working conditions, fair wages, and the rights of laborers. The day has its origins in the labor movement of the late 19th century when workers campaigned for an eight-hour workday.

Key events that contributed to the establishment of International Workers' Day include the Haymarket affair in Chicago in 1886, where workers protested for an eight-hour workday, leading to a clash with police and the deaths of several protesters. In 1889, the International Socialist Conference declared May 1st as International Workers' Day in remembrance of the Haymarket affair and to honor the labor movement's achievements.

Today, International Workers Day is observed with various activities such as rallies, marches, protests, and demonstrations organized by labor unions, workers organizations, and social justice advocates worldwide. It serves as a reminder of the ongoing struggles for workers rights, social justice, and fair treatment in the workplace. Additionally, it is a day to recognize and appreciate the contributions of workers to society and the economy.
