Workers in Rebellion: A May Day Event

May Day has been a significant date for many working people worldwide since the late 19th century. From the battles over the 8-hour day to the general strike, walkouts and rallies of 2006, workers have utilized May 1 to gather with each other and assert their rights.

This May Day, Wild Rose Collective will be hosting a speaking event featuring the following speakers and topics.

  • Paul Street is a journalist, author, historian, political commentator and Iowa City resident. Paul will be speaking about about class power and real reforms vs. illusory ones.
  • Dan Knutson is a member of Wild Rose Collective and will discuss building social movements that can win.
  • Carlos Rich is an organizer for the Center For New Community and will talk about workplace organizing along the food production line.


This event will take place Saturday May 1, 2010 at the Iowa City Public Library (Room A) starting at 3:00 PM.
