Dia do Trabalhor
(International Labor Day). The day commemorates the Haymarket Riots in Chicago (USA), on 4 May 1886. At that time, it became increasingly common to protest and strike against miserable working conditions and low wages. One day before, police killed and wounded workers during a strike. As a reaction, the rally at Haymarket Square was organized by labor radicals, who were strongly opposed against capitalism. As the police arrived to disperse the crowd, one still unidentified radical threw a bomb at the police. The police, and possibly members of the crowd opened fire: 7 policemen and one civilian were killed. In 1955, the Catholic Church moved the date to 1 May, the day of Saint Joseph the Worker, patron saint of the workers.
