The annual march and rally to celebrate International Workers Day will once again take place in Nottingham. On Saturday 3rd. May local people will come together with music, song and speeches, and a march through the city centre, in a traditional MayDay carnival.
The Nottingham and Notts. Refugee Forum, (NNRF), Campaign Group are once again holding a MayDay march and rally in the centre of the city. On Saturday 3rd. May from 12.00--16.00 at the Brewhouse Yard Museum, Castle Boulevard there will be a celebration of International Workers Day. There will be music from around the world, speeches by local activists from many and varied campaigns, several campaign stalls and food by Veggies (hopefully).
As ever the theme of the day will concentrate on asylum and refugee issues not least being the government's latest attack on those most vulnerable of people, the withdrawal of primary health care to refused asylum seekers.
In addition to this event there will also be a public meeting on Thursday 1st. May at the International Community Centre on Mansfield Road at 19.00. The theme of this will be the so-called war on terror, civil liberties and there effect on migration. Moazzam Begg, who was held in Guantanamo Bay for several years, has agreed to come and speak.
Join us on both of these events and help keep MayDay alive in Nottingham.
