Mayday 2022 saw a return to the streets in London, with assembly at Clerkenwell Green for now traditional march and rally in tourist town, Trafalgar Square. The London May Day organising Committee set the slogans
FOR TRADE UNION RIGHTS – HUMAN RIGHTS
FIGHT AUSTERITY – FIGHT RACISM
As the Morning Star describes it “the one day of the year that celebrates workers’ achievements and battles.”
Leading up to this Mayday, confined to isolated bed rest by Covid inflection – so much for it being the tailend of the pandemic – thoughts turned to what is needed for the future.
