The origin of May Day


Jan 20,2022

The executive yuan of the Central People's Government of China decided in December 1949 to make May 1 Labor Day.
After 1989, the State Council basically commended the national model workers and advanced workers every five years, about 3000 people each time. On the eve of May 1, 1921, workers learned to sing "May 1 Memorial song" in Changxindian labor school founded by Deng Zhongxia, a member of the Communist group in Beijing. This magnificent and powerful song was created by the teachers of Changxindian labor practice school and the progressive students of Peking University. Although the struggle was suppressed on May 1, 1886, the continuous struggle of the working class of various countries has finally won the "eight hour working system" and "May 1 Labor Day".
This festival will always be accompanied by workers all over the world, and become the protection of workers' rights and interests. Through struggle, labourers have won their legitimate rights and interests with the indomitable, heroic and unyielding spirit of struggle, which is the historical progress of human civilization and democracy.
