Fourth of the Lie, Hosted by May Day 505 Coalition

  • Phil Chacon Park 1098 Louisiana Boulevard Southeast Albuquerque, NM, 87108 United States (map)

Reject the lie of the #FourthofJuly! Neither Africans, nor Natives, nor any peoples exploited and brutalized by American settler colonialism knew freedom at the inception of this so-called holiday in 1776. The exploitation and murder of our ancestors continued unabated as the myth of this country was born. Join May Day 505 at Phil Chacon Park on Wednesday July 4th as we celebrate the #FourthoftheLie: an afternoon of revolutionary speakers, music, delicious shared food (with vegan options!), flag burning, and international and working class solidarity against oppression. Join us at the park as we expose the lie of American Independence Day and continue to build Albuquerque's movement for social justice and against imperialism, capitalism, and colonialism - all while having a great time with good food on a beautiful day. This event is free and open to all: families, children, elders, LGBTQ folks welcome!
