MAY 1ST: THE CELEBRATION OF WORK!

Yesterday,  May 1st, almost all nations of the world celebrated work, in memory of the Haymarket uprising, which took place in Chicago in 1886, when demonstrators asked to respect the laws made regarding 8 hours in factories, were attacked by the police. The protest went on for three days and on May 4th culminated in a real battle between the striking workers and the Chicago police, eleven people lost their lives in what would go down in history as the Haymarket massacre. Three years later, on July 20, 1889, in Paris, during the first congress of the Second International, an organization created by the socialist parties, the idea of ​​a large demonstration was launched to reduce the working day to 8 hours. The initiative became a symbol of the workers’ demands,  workers who, in those years, were fighting for better rights and working conditions. In Italy the recurrence of the Labor Day is usually celebrated with the “big concert” organized jointly by the trade unions CGIL, CISL and UIL in Rome. Work is a right! Men and women have the right to work;  nothing can be done without work!
