  • Reclaiming Cinco de Mayo / Rescate de Cinco de Mayo

    The San Francisco Living Wage Coalition
    invites you to our Spring art and literature gala

    Reclaiming
    Cinco de Mayo
    Celebration of Cross-border Unity

    The theme is rescuing Cinco de Mayo from its corporate commercialization
    as "Drinko de Mayo." On May 5, 1862, a people’s militia fought invading
    French troops in the town of Puebla, Mexico, defeating an army twice its
    size. Napoleon was planning to intervene in the U.S. Civil War on the
    side of the slavocracy. The intervention of the French could have been a
    decisive factor leading to a Confederate victory in the Civil War. After
    the battle of Gettysburg, Union forces joined Mexicans in their efforts
    to drive out the French monarchy and reinstall the democratically
    elected President Benito Juarez. Today, more than ever, we need unity in
    a renewed struggle for greater democracy, especially economic democracy.
