Socialist Action Speech to 26th annual Socialist Celebration of International Workers' Day

May Day is our day. Like workers around the world, we take the measure of our forces, consider our challenges, and re-dedicate the movement to socialism.

2011 was an historic year of revolt. Revolutions spread across the Arab world, general strikes across Europe, a massive campaign to stop the Keystone XL pipeline, student strikes in Chile, huge demos against land seizure in China, and big working-class fight backs in Wisconsin and Ohio. It was the year of the Orange Wave, catapulting the NDP into the Official Opposition in Parliament. The Occupy movement captured world attention, spreading to over 1,700 cities.
