Long live May Day!

On Friday at 07:00 UTC, the world’s first global virtual May Day celebration will begin. That’s 08:00 in London.

Working together with the International Trade Union Confederation and all the global union federations, the Labourstart organisation is hosting a 12- hour long broadcast of videos and live events from trade unions around the globe.

They have collected videos made especially for May Day from unions on every continent.

They will send out a reminder before the event begins and will be asking you on Friday to join them at https://www.labourstart.org/mayday.

They hope to share a provisional schedule of what they are showing a day before the broadcast.

Over the next few days, they need your help to raise awareness of this incredible event.

  • Please note the start time in your diaries and join when you can, throughout the day.
  • Please spread the word in your unions by email and on social media.
  • If you have contacts in your local media (television, radio, newspapers, etc) please alert them to the press release and encourage them to cover the event.
  • In some places, the event will be shown on local television stations — we encourage you to find many ways to share the event to the widest possible audience.

May Day is our international workers’ holiday — it will not be shut-down or locked-down.

Long live international workers’ solidarity!  Long live May Day!
