In addition to the framework of the Transcontinental May Day consisting of the call (presenting the common ground), suggestions for common symbols as well as the hashtag #1world1struggle participants of previous chat meetings agreed to support fostering practical solidarity by creating a platform enabling groups to connect and refer to each others struggle.
And this is how it works:
- Leave a short message inside this pad with the following information:
short introduction to your group/ labour union + details on the ongoing struggle (if applicable) + contact information
- Wait for groups to get in touch with you or contact one of the groups already listed. You can also refer more people to your request by sending a short note to the May Day 2017 mailing list.
- Once two groups are connected and agreed to refer to each other during their May Day activities (e.g. front banner at the demo, rally at an outlet of the company directly connected to the industrial action elsewhere) leave a short note inside the pad.
- Record the activity and share a report with the mailing list.

May Day strikes and mobilizations are taking place in many, many cities and communities across the United States this year. We are tracking and publicizing many of them at http://www.EarthDayMayDay.org . . . a project of the Global Climate Convergence and the Liberty Tree Foundation for the Democratic Revolution. Liberty Tree has been building an Earth Day to May Day politics in the U.S. since 2013, based on model of Earth Day to May Day developed in Wisconsin in the 1990s (and which in part led to the Wisconsin Uprising of 2011).
