Marching on May Day

The Workers Party joined with thousands of trade unionists, men, women  and children, fellow citizens and people who subscribe to a better way of life to march in this year’s May Day Parade in Belfast.

Those taking part were calling  for a better way of life, a better society and a community united with itself in opposition to sectarianism, racism, sexism and homophobia. May Day is also an opportunity to highlight  demands for jobs and job opportunities, integrated education, an end to barriers and walls and the abysmal failure of the Assembly to deliver on the promises of the Good Friday Agreement.

While others trade in division and difference, emblems and anthems there is a large constituency in Northern Ireland which rejects sectarian politics and sectarian head counting. Those people were marching in Belfast’s May Day Parade.
