(en) Sweden: Pictures of may day celebrations

Date Fri, 19 May 2017 18:11:47 +0300


Approximately a bit over 7,000 people participated in this years' libertarian and revolutionary may day celebrations and marches in the memory of the Haymarket martyrs and the struggle for the 8 hour workday. ---- With sunny weather over almost all of the country, the "new normal" size for Stockholm kept up with 2,500 participants, and a similarly sized crowd in Gothenburg caused a roar in the media as the Social Democrat party march was smaller than "even that of the syndicalists!". ---- In the third city of Malmö, 800 people marched with the Revolutionary May Day network, consisting of groups like Allt åt Alla, Mangla, Support Your Local Feminist, Anti-fascist Action, and Malmö LS of the SAC (Örestads LS, associated with the IAA/IWA participated as well).

In the university town of Uppsala, a similar network - "Libertarian May Day" - drew a crowd of 250 syndicalists, autonomists and anarchists, supported by a lively and reconstituted Anarcho-Syndicalist Youth Federation club.

Pictures from SAC's Arbetaren (now no longer a weekly print magazine, but an online magazine with a printed supplmentary monthly magazine)
