May Day NYC 2015 | International Worker’s Day Movement building in barrios deserted for profit Allotted only to those who wear ropes bearing fruit at their ends Year after year, the exploited the wretched the muck of barrels traded for bodies Dented by chains still shaking to rocky seas After hurricanes too big to contain the vanguard, the reserve, the unpaid, the Yolk of humanity , boiled , who’s skin was shattered for their hands and their hands only Never shall we forget the foundation who’s backs we stand on since Yesterday’s war against mother eve Caught by nets hanging off the shores of a black oasis, too sacred to describe #MayDay2015 #MayDayNYC #WorkerPower #PeoplePowerMovement @peoplepowermovement #nycphotographer #nycphotography #protests #photojournalism #streetphotography #canonrebel #every28hours #BlackLivesMatter #Ferguson - Photo by #JayEsPhotography See the rest of the photos at: https://flic.kr/s/aHskgPuyDW

Boston, Mass  -  Friends, family, and community supporters make an appeal to support the "Boston School Bus 5” - a courageous group of union leaders who were unjustly fired in November after their co-workers staged a job protest against Veolia, the private company based in France that illegally locked out the bus drivers on October 8th, following repeated violations of their union contract.   Supporters are asked to: 1)  Make a contribution -  An avalanche of solidarity and support in the form of $10, $50 or $100 donations will make a huge impact in the lives of these bus drivers and their families in this trying time, providing them the material support to continue to fight these unjust firings and continue to struggle for justice  and dignity for school bus drivers.  2)  Share the fundraising link through email and social media.
