Hundreds of local people and activists joined the 14th annual 1st May celebrations in Wolverhampton. It was again the biggest attendance ever.
Thanks to all the trade unions which sponsored it, the performers and volunteers who helped make it work so well.
And what better way to celebrate it than to vote against the BNP and attend the Wolverhampton, Bilston and District Trade Union Council which holds its annual celebration on Workers' Day whether Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, and was a wonderful success with a multicultural attendance fitting for the district that it takes place in.
This was the 14th. annual 1st of May celebrations in Wolverhampton under the slogan of Workers of the West Midlands Unite; not quite as sonorous as Workers of the World Unite but embodying the same principles.
Now I challenge any organisation in Britain to have put on such a multicultural May Day Celebration attended equally by seasoned militants of many nations and politically innocent young people of all cultures.
It was good to know that that Birmingham were also having a multicultural event and we hope that it was as successful as ours in Wolverhampton.
