May Day is May 1 is this Sunday. There’s a few things going on, to which the following is a guide.
The Victorian Trades Hall Council is organising a rally and march. Assemble 12.30pm outside Trades Hall (corner Victoria and Russell Streets). [Youse can join the Socialist Alliance for a toast before the march @ the Resistance Centre (Level 5, 407 Swanston St, City (opposite RMIT)) if youse wanna.]
Following celebrations @ Trades Hall, from 4pm the Melbourne Anarchist Club will be enjoying May Day with music, drinks and food. There’ll be acoustic sets from Wil Wagner, Tom Denton (Sweet Teens), A Commoners Revolt (solo) and Jim Power (Ducks in the Mud). NB. The original Melbourne Anarchist Club was formed on May 1, 1886, making 2011 the 125th anniversary of anarchism in Australia.
