A day of celebration, our day of combat!

The first of May is our day of celebration. It’s the day of celebration of the labour movement - and no one else's.

But the first of May is also our day of combat. Because when it comes to social justice, there is still a great deal of work to be done. Nothing definitive has yet been gained from all our struggles. That’s why we need to celebrate on May Day, because that’s when we can showcase our pride in what we have achieved so far. But we must also remain vigilant, as well as active – because the (far) right is still on the rise and will not hesitate to turn back the social clock if it can.
