The CME has been educating revolutionists since 1975 by hosting events that are free and open to the public. Through the generosity of volunteers, we provide lectures, films, book talks, strategy meetings and discussion groups from global, national, and local socialists for anyone who believes that capitalism isn't working, and wants to find a better way. We regret that the CME is not accessible.

International Workers Day, May Day, is celebrated all over the world as labor’s holiday saluting the struggle for the 8-hour day and working class demands in general. It is a day of parades and mobilizations commemorating the general strike which began in Chicago on May 1, 1886 and spread around the world.
May Day, 2006 witnessed the largest nationwide general strike in the US in decades. El Gran Paro, involved working people in the millions and shut down workplaces and schools around the country, including the port of Los Angeles, many factories, and small businesses. It was preceded by huge mobilizations in a number of major cities against the criminalization of migrant workers.
Please join us in a discussion of May Day, its origins, the 2006 General Strike, and this year’s May Day in downtown Boston.
