Workers of the World, Unite! -- May 5 Online Rally will mark 200th Anniversary of Marx's birth
In just over one week, on May 5 at 5:30 PM EDT, the International Committee of the Fourth International will hold its annual May Day Online Rally. This year, the event coincides with the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx. the greatest philosopher of modern history and the founder of scientific socialism. Marx's call: “Workers of the world unite!” resonates today amid an eruption of the class struggle on every continent.
The capitalist system, based on the exploitation of the working class, is wracked by crisis.
All over the world, the ruling elites seek to protect their wealth and save this bankrupt system by resorting to war and repression. The governments and corporations are censoring the Internet out of fear that this revolutionary source for information and communication can link workers across the world in a common struggle against inequality, dictatorship and war.
The international online rally will include participants from dozens of countries worldwide. Speakers will include leaders of the Fourth International from around the world.
We urge you to make plans to attend this historic event. It will be broadcast live at wsws.org/mayday.
