Today in dozens of countries in the World is a holiday: people are celebrating the day of Work and Workers. The history of the holiday is connected with 1890 year, when May 1st was celebrated as an international day of Work and Workers for the first time.
Before the official establishment of the holiday: on May 1st, 1886 workers' unrest were in one of the large industrial cities in the USA, Chicago. People, who came out for a strike, demanded to make the working day 8 hours. The strike was over with clashes with the Police. The most participants of the unrest were arrested, the organizers were sentenced to death.
In 1889 the 2nd International Congress in Paris decided to organize a strike every year on May 1st in the memory of Chicago's workers.
At the beginning of the 20th century the revolutionary movement moved to Russia and already during the Soviet Unions years May 1st was celebrated with great fanfare: accompanied by the traditional Parade.
