In the United States and Canada, however, the official holiday for workers is celebrated in September. After the Haymarket Square riot in May, 1886, US President Grover Cleveland feared that commemorating Labor Day on May 1 could become an opportunity to commemorate the riots. Thus he moved in 1887 to support the Labor Day that the anti-anarchist union the Knights of Labor supported.
The struggle to have eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight hours for rest was the origin of International Workers’ Day, which is also referred to as May Day or Labor Day.
May Day became an international workers day to remember the sacrifice of the anarchists. They were framed on false charges of throwing a bomb at police breaking up a demonstration in Chicago. This was part of a strike demanding an 8 hour day involving 400,000 workers in Chicago that started May 1st 1886 .
In 1887, four Chicago anarchists were executed; a fifth cheated the hangman by killing himself in prison. Three more were to spend 6 years in prison until pardoned by Governor Altgeld.
Originally a pagan holiday, the roots of the modern May Day bank holiday are in the fight for the eight-hour working day in Chicago in 1886, and the subsequent execution of innocent anarchist workers.
May Day, or International Workers Day, is a day held in commemoration of four anarchists executed for struggling for an 8-hour day.
