May Day is marked around the world by celebrations and protests. Historically a celebration that Spring has arrived.

The day morphed into International Worker’s Day a global observance of workers' rights after a May 1, 1886, strike by workers in Chicago demanding an eight-hour workday.

Last year in #USA, thousands of demonstrators turned out, many protesting the policies of POTUS Trump.
