The Internationalist Group is the American branch of the left-wing political organization, League For The Fourth International. The group's ideology is based in Trotskyism and their political goals are centered around the defense of the working class and immigrants. On May 1st, 2017, the Internationalist Group helped to organize some of the protests that were held in New York city for May Day. Their protests in particular were focused on defending the rights of migrants against what they viewed as anti-immigration policy by the new Trump presidential administration. Buttons were created to raise awareness for the protest and distributed via mail from their website.
