PRIMERO DE MAYO

Entre los más lejanos recuerdos de la infancia tengo a mi padre preparándose para salir al desfile del primero de mayo, con el contingente de obreros de la Sección 82 del Ingenio Quesería. Por la seriedad con que lo hacía, ese día, el Día del Trabajo, siempre me inspiró mucho respeto y así lo conservé muchos años. Con las décadas el sentimiento, confieso, es distinto (no por mi padre), pero ese es otro tema.

Hoy me tocó vivir el primero de mayo en otro lugar, en Catamarca, provincia argentina donde viven un grupo de buenos amigos. En Argentina el primero de mayo se celebra el Día del Trabajador; no es lo mismo, aunque podría parecerse. Celebrar a los trabajadores pone el énfasis en las personas, en las mujeres y hombres, no en las actividades en abstracto. Celebrar el día del trabajo así, como en México, me obliga a preguntarme, nada más por jugar y para intentar poner las cosas de revés: ¿sería lo mismo el día de la infancia que el día de los niños?, ¿sería igual celebrar el día del maestro que el día del magisterio o el día de la docencia?, ¿valdría lo mismo el día de la maternidad que el día de la madre?

No tengo respuestas, ni me propongo indagar más allá. No creo que sea bizantino, pero para avanzar en ese hilo tendríamos que reconstruir la genealogía de  las palabras y la cultura política y sindical. De lo que estoy seguro es que “Trabajo” y “Trabajadores” no es lo mismo, y que la diferencia entre el día del trabajo y el día de los trabajadores es sutil pero esencial. Tan distinto y no tan sutil, como marchar bajo el sol después de unas horas de espera y escuchar discursos vacíos, o felicitar y ser felicitado por otros iguales con un abrazo y una palabra cariñosa.

    No work on May 1 is a tradition.

    It’s good to know the holidays for other countries.

    It would be better to celebrate the day of the worker as in Argentina.

    Your blogs always make my day.

  7. Daniela Moctezuma 2A dice:

    I thought the work day performed only the may day in Mexico.

    But also in Argentina is celebrate the may day.

    I´m happy you remember these moment in which his father was preparing to leave.

    And you´re right , not the same work day that employee day.

  8. Amayelli Itzel Silva Contreras 2ºD dice:

    The work day is very important because it is the recognition of all the effort that workers make.

    The loss of importance that has been given is very big day is now no longer recognized but for missing a date to work.

    Perhaps more elsewhere is commemorated and celebrated day otherwise.

    No matter how you celebrate is the day, what really matter what it means.

  9. Roberto Banda Flores dice:

    Incredible, I did know not this detail.

    it would be good experiment with reaction of people and differents words.

    All are in the approach applied for the celebration.

    I believe that all you questions are correct.

    Is nice to remember stages of infancy.
    I agree with you that job and worker is not the same.
    This day in history was a struggle for worker rights.
    Is very good and respectable remember this day.

    Without teachers a country not progress.

    And is interesting the differenceswith our countries.
    Memories are very important, it always remember you about something and how much important is it.

  13. Carrillo Mosqueda Gustavo Alberto. 2A dice:

    I think many days were named to rest and not to work.
    And so justify, not going to work.
    And validate it worse.
    Just need to have pizza day.

  14. Christian D. Renteria Garcia dice:

    Most of the teachers in Mexico are not well prepared.
    I just had like 2 good teachers.
    Teachers are agreat support.
