Minneapolis, St. Paul celebrate May


The Twin Cities know how to celebrate May Day, and this weekend’s sunshine brought out the best. The photos are still coming in, and we’ll be adding links to slide shows as soon as we get them up. Want to share your photos? Bring them on! (See instructions at bottom of this article.)

Here’s a beginning:

Alan Wilfahrt’s May Day Immigrant Workers March

For the last 123 years, communities around the world have gone into the streets in remembrance of the 1886 Chicago workers strike, a strike led by immigrant workers demanding better rights for workers and better working conditions. Friday’s march in Minneapolis asked the Obama administration to stop the raids and deportations and provide a new avenue for legalization for the millions of undocumented immigrants living and working in this country.
