  • Our Observation :

As today is 3rd May,we would like to remember the historical signifance of this day. When our fellow migrant workers and the poor people is not even getting minimum rations,when basic human rights is being denied,when this system is failed to protect its own people its high time we reconsider our glorious past and act accordingly.

On the 3rd May, 1886 a strike in the McCormick Harvesting Machine Company plant turned violent when the strikebreakers who entered the factory with the help of a 400 strong police garrison were confronted by the strikers when the factory bell rang. In the melee, the Police fired and killed 6 people. This incident sparked of the Haymarket affair next day.

We remember all our fallen brothers and sisters. When the time comes, we shall avenge them and build the world they wanted to build.
