On the 1st of May, the Labor Day is being celebrated in the whole country. Meetings and processions are being organised in all the big cities by the Socialist Party. But, like each year the greatest festivities are taking place in the Metropole, Antwerp. There, these celebrations are real festivities, with huge processions and decorated wagons. The many groups start from different points of the city and form a procession, the groups carrying huge hoardings with slogans for the Socialist and Labor Party. Huge crowds stand in all the streets where the procession is coming through, headed by the leaders of the Socialist Party. Of course, before the procession, the leaders, hold warmly applauded speeches, one of them was like each year, Mr. Eamille Huysmans, Minister of State.
