March
Date: Saturday, 01 May 2010

Hi everyone, on the day of the march meet outside St James Station at 11am, next to the Stop the War Collective. We march at 12pm. See you then!

We have decided to participate in the May Day march as a group on May 1. As an annual action it's normally held in the city on a Sunday, but someguy decided to flout with tradition and it will be on a Saturday this year instead. Wotevas.

And this is the union etc. call-out:

This year Sydney will celebrate May Day on Saturday May 1. The historic March will assemble at noon at Hyde Park North and will march down George Street. The march will be lead by the Fire Brigade Employees Union who, in 2010, are celebrating 100 years. The march will end at First Fleet Park in Circular Quay where speeches will be given by Ark Tribe - South Australian unionist facing 6 months prison at the hands of the ABCC, Lee Rhiannon - from the NSW Greens, Andrew Ferguson - NSW Secretary, CFMEU Construction and General Division and Paul McAleer - Sydney Branch Secretary MUA.

I think this was the nicest May Day weekend in ages. The bbq at MRC went well and despite low numbers at the Trades Hall organised march on May 2nd, there seemed to be more anarchists than usual.

Also, the pork and apple sausages were a revelation.
