May Day 2021 is coming to Melbourne

May Day is workers day in Australia and throughout the world since 1886. This is a time when the workers movement sums up its experiences and charts its course for the next period.

An ongoing demand in Australia, is the right to belong to a union and take industrial action to defend and progress the interests of all workers. Denial of this right has helped to drive down wages and working conditions, by weakening collective organisation.

In 2021 May Day will also involve the demands for an independent foreign policy, proper, humane, and welcoming treatment for refugees and migrants, support for Australians First Nations peoples, action on the climate crisis and more.

Take part in Melbourne’s May Day activities for 2021.
