The Portland I.W.W. is proud to present our own awesome May Day party: PROLERSKATING!
All workers are welcome to our FREE rollerskating party at the Mt. Scott Community Center’s roller rink on Friday, May 1!
The action begins at 8:30pm, and we’ll roll the Union on until 11:00pm!
We’re going to celebrate International Workers’ Day with a fun, family-friendly event that is open to everyone (except bosses, of course). There will be:
- ROLLERSKATING! (free skate rentals)
- MUSIC! (send us your song requests!)
- FOOD & BEVERAGES* (this will be a potluck, so feel free to bring along some snacks or a dish!)
- CONTESTS & PRIZES! (best rollerskating moves?)
- SOLIDARITY with your comrades!
Also, there will be an unofficial pre-party in the playground area outside of the roller rink, as we wait until 8:30 to go inside.
Please share this event with your family, friends and co-workers!
* note: alcohol is not permitted at the Mt. Scott Community Center. Let’s save the spirits for the after-party!
On Thursday, May 1, we invite you to march with the I.W.W. during the May Day celebration in downtown Portland!
ALL WORKERS are welcome to join us! Our strength lies in our numbers, and working class solidarity is our goal and the tool with which we will create a better society within the shell of the old.
We’ll see YOU on May Day, at Park Ave. & SW Main St. in downtown Portland, at 3:00pm!
(look for the red balloons!)

Join the Portland IWW and the May Day Coalition as we sing and dance to working class music!
This will not only be a celebration to get all us Rabble Rousers pumped for May 1st but also to raise some funds to make May Day as awesome as it should be!
Remember this is also Worker Wednesday which means discounted beer for union members!
Cory Sabin and I Wobble Wobble will be performing.
There will also be a raffle! So bring some cash for some great items!
Do you have a kid that might want to make a float for the May Day march?
All ages welcome! All kids welcome!
Parents do not have to be in the IWW for kids to participate.
Junior Wobblies is going to decorate a bike cart for the march, using our imagination and materials from SCRAP.
