Local Greens attend May Day rally in London

2 May 2015

 

Steve Lambert and RoseMary Warrington joined other members of the Green Party from all over London and beyond at the May Day rally to mark International Worker's Day.

The march, a tradition since the late 1800s, celebrates the work and voice of workers, Trade Unions and migrant workers.

This year's rally featured speakers from TUC, GMB and the Fire Brigades Union among others, with the focus on fighting austerity, TTIP and racism.

There was a strong international presence as usual, and everyone attending the rally also sent a message of solidarity with Turkish workers who'd been attacked by Police in Istanbul earlier that day.

Waltham Forest and Redbridge Green party had a stall at the start of the rally in Clerkenwell, before carrying banners on the march itself.  They finished with a stall and leafleting in Trafalgar Square.
