#GlobalMayDay2021: Actions across Ireland

The IWW Ireland supports the call for Global May Day 2021. Here are some of the activities arranged by the local branches.


Belfast IWW mark International Workers Day in Writers Square in Belfast City after gathering at the International Antifascist monument dedicated to the international brigadists. Our actions formed part of Global MayDay celebrations across Ireland and internationally with other revolutionary syndicalist unions and organisations.

As part of our May Day actions we set up a short history of May Day, the IWW, and Industrial Unionism in Writers Square. We were able to chat to passers by about the reason we mark May Day and the state of trade unionism today.
The IWW won’t give you special credit cards or package holidays, but we will always fight for the dignity and right of our class to all that our hands produce.

Another glorious day in Derry’s Guildhall Square as Wobblies helped celebrate International Workers Day with a banner drop in the Square. The action was in solidarity with national and international actions carried out by a number of revolutionary unions as part of Global May Day 2021. IWW members set up a free street exhibition on the IWW, its history and solidarity unionism as well as stencils, stickers and flyposting as we commemorated international workers day.
