Sydney celebrates May Day


May Day is a historically significant day for our class: without unions we would not have any rights on the job. These are under attack today and on May Day we were there to defend our penalty rates, our unions' right to organise against Turnbull's new construction police (ABCC), against racism and for peace, justice and for an ecologically sustainable future.

Pictured is the loud, colourful and militant Socialist Alliance contingent in the Sydney May Day march. It was led by Uncle Ken Canning, First Nations activist and poet who is heading the Socialist Alliance Senate NSW ticket in the coming federal elections.
