May Day Celebrations

On the 6th of May, I joined in the May Day March and Rally on George Square organised by Glasgow Trades Council. The focus was celebrating the life of John Maclean and commemorating the Red Clydeside era.

McCluskey Brothers perform on stage.

Crowds gather to hear a range of informative speakers.

The speeches highlighted the concerns of Equity members, Youth climate strikers and campaigners to save St Rollox Caley works in Springburn. 

It is vital that we safeguard European laws on workers' rights, on women's rights and on human rights. It is because of the European Union that these rights, achieved through hard fought  battles by trade unionists, by women, and others, are enshrined in law across Europe and this should be celebrated.
