Stand united on May 1st

Whether you call it The Great American Boycott, or the "Day without Immigrants", or the May Day March... it doesn't matter. This is the largest single-day organized protest for human rights in history, now in its second year. Below is a list of places and organizations taking part. Unfortunately despite the efforts of different organizations there is still no complete list, so if you do not see your city or town below, chances are that there is something happening anyways and it just hasn't been announced nationally.
