Here we talk (via Skype) with Romina Ribera and Saverio Pepe about a May Day Party they went to at Piazza San Giovanni in Italy that had over 1 million people in attendance. This video is part of the May Day Project.
MAY DAY PROJECT:
In more than 140 countries, May 1 is celebrated as a workers’ holiday. May Day commonly sees organized street demonstrations and celebrations by hundreds of thousands of working people throughout the world. In the United States May Day has become a day to mobilize undocumented workers for immigration rights. Amanda Martinez and Alba Mora-Roca talked to observers in Russia, Venezuela, Mexico, China and elsewhere to find out how those celebrations differed according to geography.
