MayDay

For reports of Mayday rallies across the country, see Green Left Weekly. In Melbourne, a rally at the City Square concentrating on opposition to the war on Iraq was joined by another large group of unionists who had assembled across the river and marched in support of former AMWU state secretary Craig Johnson – see report for 10 May below.
