May Day 2017

May Day has been celebrated internationally since 1886 as the day for workers to unite as a class. Capitalists and governments are killing us in our workplaces and in our communities. Workers need to stop the politics of austerity and war. March in solidarity with workers in struggle everywhere. Rallies and demonstrations will occur all around the world. In Melbourne, Australia, the May Day rally will be at 1pm, Sunday 7 May, outside Trades Hall.  There will also be a reading of international statements and a rally on Monday 1 May at 5:30pm, commencing at the State Library as well as an annual congregation of workers at the 8 Hour Monument at 12pm on the same day.
