Call from the Youth Liberation Front for autonomous actions on May 1st.
Right now, in the middle of quarantine, more and more people are losing the ability to pay for food, the majority of people literally cannot pay their rent due to the mass layoffs, we’ve all been given orders to stay home or else, but some of us can’t, or don’t have homes to stay at. It’s getting clearer, even to the everyday liberal, that the government will let poor and marginalized people die by the thousands before it will even pretend to offer support.

People are dying, and the government is only offering a one time payment of $1,200 to save us, so it’s up to us as leftists to band together and create the communities we believe in. Now is the time for us to live and take care of each other without government intervention or the shackles of capitalism. On May 1st, 2020, we are calling for a general strike!
We at LAAB are joining @PNWYLF’s call for an Autonomous May Day. We do not need big rallys to show solidarity. Let’s make sure everyone knows that our hoods belong to the working class! 🏴🔥🏴 https://t.co/lAlzIhp8QN

We can fight the state during this quarantine, on May 1st we are calling for folks to organize small affinity groups, do banner drops and wheatpasting, liberate food and medicine, continue striking from work/rent/debt, squat unoccupied houses everywhere, form houseless outreach projects and other mutual aid projects and autonomous actions to help your community. All power to the people this International Workers Day! Youth of the world unite!
