History of International Workers Day
In the late 19th century, the trade and labour movements have grown. And it also has chosen a variety of days by the trade unionists as the day to celebrate the labour. In the United States and Canada, a September holiday called the Labor or the Labour Day, which was first proposed in the 1880s. In 1882, Matthew Maguire, the machinist, first proposed a Labour Day holiday on the first Monday of September, while serving as a secretary of the Central Labour Union (CLU) of New York. Others argue it was first proposed by the Peter J.McGuire of the American Federation of Labour in May 1882. In 1887 in North America, the Labour Day was first established as the official holiday, but in September, not on 1 May.
Then May 1 was chosen to be the International Workers Day to commemorate the 1886 Haymarket affair in Chicago. In the same year beginning on the 1st May, there was a general strike for the eight-hour workday. On 4th May, the Police acted to disperse a public assembly in support of the strike when an unidentified person threw a bomb. The Police also responded by firing on the workers. That even leads to the death of eight and the injury of police was sixty. And there was an unknown number of civilians killed or wounded. On the next day on 5th May in Milwaukee Wisconsin, the state militia fired on the crowd of strikers killing seven, including the schoolboy and a man feeding chickens in his yard. Then the 1st May rally in Bucharest in 1967 May Day has been the focal point for the demonstrations by the various socialist, communist and anarchist groups since the Second International. Now the majority of countries around the world celebrates the Worker’s day on the 1st May.
