Labor Day picnic in Michigan: Reviving a tradition


To commemorate the spirit of solidarity on this year’s Labor Day, the Detroit, Metro Detroit, and Washtenaw Clubs of CPUSA hosted a picnic in Detroit located in Clark Park on Monday. Among the guests were Michigan Mutual Aid Coalition, Ann Arbor Coalition Against the War, as well as members of the Lansing and Columbus Clubs of CPUSA. Speakers talked about peace and labor issues, and the two voting-rights and abortion-rights ballot initiatives Michiganders will vote on in November.

Over two years ago, we revived our May Day and Labor Day picnics, and each one gets bigger and better. A plentiful feast of hamburgers, ribs, and hotdogs and a plethora of sides and desserts were had. Whatever suitable portions remained were donated to local food banks in the Detroit area with the help of Michigan Mutual Aid Coalition.
