Come along to the May Day March and Rally 2014 and celebrate solidarity across borders

Come along and celebrate International Workers Day with us, in a family friendly march down Union Street to demonstrate your opposition to austerity and to show solidarity across borders.

The 2014 May Day March and Rally will gather at Rubislaw Terrace Gardens, Aberdeen at 11am.

Organised by Aberdeen Trades Union Council (ATUC), it will march off at 11.30am down the full length of Union Street, to a Rally in the Castlegate at 12.15 where there will be a variety of speakers, including Ian Tasker from the STUC, as well as other trades unionists, politicians and community activists.
Alan Robertson, President of the ATUC urged union members, their families and friends, and community activists to attend the march and rally in numbers.

He said, "Let's make this a march to remember.

"For the second year running, marchers will be able to march the whole length of Union Street, after a number of years when permission for that was not granted. It is important that as many trades union and community activists as possible turn out.

"Please bring your banners, flags, pendants and signs to make the march and rally as colourful as possible."
