Saturday, May 1, 2021 - 2:30 pm to 6:00 pm | Cost: FREE
Gather at Lake Merritt BART Parking Lot | 8th and Madison, Oakland

May Day in Oakland will be celebrated with a car caravan starting at Lake Merritt BART Parking Lot at 2:30 p.m. We will decorate our cars and head out to several locations around Oakland including Whole Foods-Market, and a location to support fast food workers. We will end the caravan at the West Oakland BART where we will march to a housing justice action.

From COVID denial, to workers being labeled “essential” then left on the frontlines unprotected, to kids in cages, to attacks on indigenous sovereignty & the planet, to attacks on women’s & LGBTQI rights, to unrelenting police & white supremacist violence – the past year has been devastating. And the eviction & debt waves haven’t even hit yet.

On May Day 2021 in Oakland, we celebrate the fighters, the builders, and everyone who found creative ways to stand together here on Turtle Island and in solidarity with oppressed people worldwide fighting US occupation and oppression.
