Banner outside Trades Hall before the march
The Melbourne May Day Committee held its annual march, concert and family festivities at Trades Hall on Sunday 3 May. Attendance seemed smaller than last year, to begin with at least, but still amounted to a respectable showing on the march through the city. Children were especially well catered for this year, with not only the usual rides and slides, but also a splendid miniature train to ride on the march. Most prominent was a large contingent of the Tamil community, but many others will be seen in the following images, and in this slideshow on YouTube:

This slide was tempting for grown-ups as well ...
Also for the children ...
Solidarity with workers of El Salvador
This banner speaks for itself
The march sets off
Some rode on a truck ...
... others on a train.
