"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
Welcome back to our special coverage of today's May Day events. May Day used to be a day set aside for immigrant workers in America - however - after opposition from the US Government - the day quickly lost most of it's relevance in our country. But - despite being dormant for decades - May Day and its legacy are able to live on today thanks in large part to America's immigrant workers. In 2006 - immigrant activists organized "a day without an immigrant" - a nationwide strike of immigrant workers. It turned out to be one of the the largest demonstrations and protests of workers in American history. And today - immigrants are making their make on this year's May Day as well. Joining Thom Hartmann now to discuss this is Axel Caballero - founder and Producer of Cuentame - a Brave New Foundation campaign..
