Derry May Day 2016

This years annual 'May Day' march and rally in Derry was smaller than previous years even though most of politicians on offer in next weeks Stormont elections were in attendance and of course many of the main trade unions were represented. 
Organised by the Derry Trades Union Council the speakers on the main stage included Liam Gallagher (Unite), Niall McCarroll (Unison Community), Noeleen Beattie (Unison), Susan Parlour (NAS/UWT). Several community and campaign groups were alos represented including anarchists from the WSM in Derry and two from the CNT Madrid.
