The week of April 4 shows how many hundreds of thousands of Americans want to speak up for union and human rights.

What's next?

May Day is next.

May 1, the International Workers Day, born in the United States of America through the fight for the eight hour work day. (Yes, that's how the labor movement brought us the weekend.)

The labor movement, working alongside the immigrant rights movement, is reclaiming and marking May 1 with rallies, marches and other events.

You and your organization, union local or blog can show your support for this great day, and the uprisings going on in Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio and elsewhere, with the People's World online ad book.

For $25, your ad along with a link to your website will display for our viewers across the nation (and internationally) from May 1 through Labor Day as a reminder of the fight for worker and human rights globally.

Proceeds will help build People's World, the online working-class tool, that is used by tens of thousands of people to get the word out about union rights, democracy, peace, equality and socialism.

All you have to do is send your ad as a JPG, with dimensions of 260 pixels x 330 pixels, and the url link you want to promote, to talbano (at) peoplesworld (dot) org and place May Day ad in the subject line. We will send you an invoice and you can pay online, over the phone or with a check.

Deadline is April 28 for May 1 publication.

(Ads will be accepted after May 1.)

Your ad will appear in rotation on the home page of peoplesworld.org and on the special ad book section of the website.

Peoplesworld.org receives 80,000 readers per month. A link to the ad book will appear on People's World Facebook page, which has a growing number of readers, currently at almost 8,000. The ad book link will also be "tweeted" on social media site Twitter.

This is a great and affordable way to promote your cause and honor May Day 2011.


More on May Day

When Wisconsin workers and students took to the streets to demand that Republican Gov. Scott Walker respect their right to organize and bargain collectively, working people and allies across the country were inspired and followed their lead. Labor groups are joining with students, community, women and immigrant rights groups, with gay and lesbian groups and faith-based organizations and leaders, making common cause for economic and social justice.

U.S. unions are reaching across national borders to make common cause with workers in other countries facing similar corporate opponents. U.S. unions were among the first to offer solidarity to Egyptian workers protesting for democracy and among the first to offer solidarity aid to Japanese trade unionists in the wake of the horrendous disasters there. Solidarity for U.S. workers has come streaming in from around the world as well.

That's the spirit of May Day and Haymarket, the spot in Chicago that marks the actual birthsite of the international workers' day.

Make sure you add your voice to the May Day celebrations. Take an ad today.
