We stand together under the same sun to proclaim, “Another world is possible without borders.” We believe that the Earth is the free territory of the Human Family. We have the right to live amicably, peacefully, ecologically sustainably, responsibly and in free association. We have Universal Human Rights, including peace, education, health, housing, culture, food, water, freedom of movement, freedom of expression, and freedom to organize.
We are a broad Coalition of organizations and individuals based in the local community which uses consensus to make decisions. We call ourselves the Orange County May Day Coalition because we both inherit the legacy of and work in ways similar to the General Strike of May 1, 1886. This historic movement won the 8-hour workday which we now enjoy and was a diverse, horizontal coalition of people from many industries, cultures and nationalities.
Our grassroots work in Orange County and solidarity work beyond the county line serves to promote and fortify Universal Human Rights.
