International Workers’ Day, also known as Labor Day in some places, is a celebration laborers and the working classes that is promoted by the international labor movement, socialists, communists and anarchists and occurs every year on the first of May. The day was chosen to honor rioters who killed seven policemen  during the Haymarket affair, and was promoted by the international communist movement which during the 20th century killed at least 94 million people.

That’s right during the 20th century communism murdered at least 94 million people.

Per the detailed analysis in “The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression” (which should be required reading by every student in America) the number of deaths caused by Communism was estimated at 94,360,000, broken down as follows:

  • USSR — 20 million
  • China — 65 million
  • Vietnam — 1 million
  • North Korea — 2 million
  • Cambodia — 2 million
  • Eastern Europe — 1 million
  • Latin America — 150,000
  • Africa — 1.7 million
  • Afghanistan — 1.5 million
  • Communist movements, parties not in power — 10,000

These estimates were made almost 20 years ago in 1997. Just imagine how some of the communist regimes have added to their total since (and some believe the estimates are too conservative)
