May 1 is celebrated as May Day, International Workers Day, and Día del Trabajo in many countries around the world. It is an official holiday in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela – among other South and Central American countries. On May 1, 2006, Latino, Catholic, and immigrant rights groups organized the Great American Boycott to protest proposed bill HR 4437. The bill’s objectives were to make residing in the US illegally a felony and to impose harsher penalties for knowingly employing or harboring non-citizens.
