Today, as millions of workers around the world celebrate May Day, a global day of solidarity, the annual DC LaborFest launches. The month-long festival celebrates workers and their struggles through the arts, including film, music, art, history and radio. More than 50 events are scheduled throughout May, anchored by the annual DC Labor FilmFest, kicking off with tonight’s screening of “The Young Karl Marx” at the AFI Silver (where you can also get your solidarity selfie with Mother Jones on her birthday!); click here to enter our raffle for free passes to tonight’s film. And be sure to tune in on WPFW 89.3FM this afternoon starting at 2pm for the “Workers of the World, Unite!” Union City Radio May Day Special, which includes reports on organizing, a LaborFest preview and two hours of great labor music.
