St. Paul, MN - More than 500 people braved frigid temperatures and gusty winds to march from the Cathedral to the Minnesota State Capitol for International Workers Day. The marchers united around demands to stop to the attacks on immigrants, workers and unions that are coming from the State Legislature.

May 1st this year marked the 125th anniversary of the 1886 workers movement demanding the 8 hour workday that was met with brutal state repression. Since then, May 1st has been honored around the world as International Workers Day.
