Cork May Day March – Report & Photos
cork | worker & community struggles and protests | news report Thursday May 01, 2008 22:52 by Ray - Cork WSM (pers. cap.) - May Day Marcher
A colourful sight on the city streets to gladden any conscious worker's heart!
This year’s march organised under the auspices of the Independent Workers’ Union paraded proudly and successfully through the streets of our city, both commemorating workers’ stuggles of the past and looking to the future – a future hopefully starred with victories for the working class over the tyranny of rapacious heartless Capital.
The marchers assembled at Lapp’s Quay and set off late, at a quarter to eight, for some Garda ‘reason’ or other. The 200-strong (my estimate) march proceeded to Daunt Sq. via Parnell Place, Merchants’ Ouay and Patrick St. Along the way the march stopped at various points along the route, where speakers (IWU General Sec. Noel Murphy, poet and socialist Diarmuid Ó Dálaigh and Cork Women’s Right to Choose’s Mary Favier) recalled some events, persons and places from Cork city’s history that were important in the struggle of labour in Ireland and worldwide.
