The South Bronx celebrated International Worker’s Day using culture and community work to defend immigrants' and workers' rights.
“This is people power, it’s bringing back May Day to where it’s supposed to be,” a woman attending the event told the Ñ Don’t Stop crew. “It’s not in Union Square, it’s for the people, this is where the workers are.”
