The real meaning of May Day, 2013 press release from the UK National Shop Stewards Network (NSSN)
“Millions of workers around the world will be marking May Day today (1st May) and over the next few days.
The media and the mainstream politicians will attempt to gloss over the real meaning of this holiday. But it will be a celebration of the struggle of workers and ordinary poor people through the ages for a decent life.
The NSSN believes that this 2013 International Workers’ Day must be more than a memorial.
NSSN national chair Rob Williams said: “The first May Day in 1886 was the first general strike in the USA, called to fight for an eight hour day.”
