California Democrat Assemblyman, Miguel Santiago, introduced a bill proposing to allow schools to replace Washington’s Birthday or Lincoln’s Birthday with “International Workers’ Day”, better known as “May Day”. This has become universally recognized as an annual holiday to celebrate Communism. Although the bill was rejected (this time), 45% of the legislators present voted for it.
Paris, France: More than 9,000 police officers were deployed to manage leftist May Day protests against presidential candidate, Marine Le Pen. The protest escalated, as planned, into riots that required police to use tear gas and baton charges. Six French police officers were injured by Molotov Cocktails.
