East Side MAY DAY Contingent Ride!

ATTN ALL riders or not:

In SOLIDARITY with workers here in LA and around the world Comida No Bombas and The Ovarian Psycos will be riding from East Los Angeles Community College to the protest in #DTLA 

Please do not buy anything!!! In efforts of reclaiming our spaces, voices, and rights we must show this city who really has the power. May Day in LA has been recorded to be one of the biggest protests in her/history but our school’s Eurocentric txt books STILL do not share with our children and scholars how people of color and the working class community have broken this record! We are still voiceless. We are a huge part of her/history! Let us not depend on books and numbers to show our kids NOW, how WE stand up for our FUTURE!
