EuroMayDay is a political day of action against precarity promoted by a network of feminist, anti-capitalist and migrant groups and collectives in mostly Western Europe. It takes place on 1 May each year, May Day, traditionally a celebration of solidarity among workers across the world. EuroMayDay has been promoted as an attempt to "update" the traditional May Day by focusing on flex and temp workers, migrants and other "precarious" people living in Europe.

History[edit]

In 2005, the EuroMayDay network used the slogan Precarious people of the world let's unite and strike 4 a free, open, radical Europe. The Middlesex Declaration of Europe's Precariat emerged from the Beyond ESF event held in parallel to the European Social Forum held in London in October 2004.
