      May Day Festivities!

      Location: New Freeway Hall, 5018 Rainier Ave S., Seattle WA 98118

      A public celebration of this international working-class holiday will be honoring the life and ideas of ?Clara Fraser: The Original Socialist Feminist.? The daughter of Russian immigrants, Fraser founded the first revolutionary socialist feminist party in the world and taught a generation of young radicals and women?s liberationists how to stand together to fight discrimination and exploitation.

      Today the party she founded, The Freedom Socialist Party, has sections in Australia and the U.S. and works with leftists in Mexico, Canada, New Zealand, Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic. Andrea Bauer, an environmentalist, queer rights rebel, and Fraser?s student in Marxist economics and Dennis Sanders, an anti-capitalist analyst and writer on international affairs, will speak.

      The event will be held at New Freeway Hall, 5018 Rainier Ave. S., Seattle, (on the #7 bus line and near the Columbia City light rail station). The festivities will kick off with "Mike?s Louisiana Gumbo feast" ($10) at 6:00pm, followed by the program at 7:30pm ($3.00 door, work exchanges available for strikers and students). Vegan foods will be available. Venue is wheelchair accessible.

      For childcare, call in advance 206-722-2453 or email FSPseattle@mindspring.com. Sponsored by the Freedom Socialist Party, www.socialism.com
