  • Description

    Throughout the world, in Communist and non-Communist countries, May Day has been observed with parades and demonstrations. Some have been solely to call for solidarity among labour unions, others have revolved round military parades, while others have been devoted mainly to protests against nuclear bomb tests and so forth.

    Indian workers were no exception therefore when they paraded through Delhi. There were banners with Communist slogans, red flags, banners demanding "Workers of the World Units", speeches by trade union and political party officials and dancing and singing.

    May 1st was declared a holiday on condition that the employees make up for lost time at some later date.
