Happy Labour Day – have a picnic

A group of Singaporean activists is organizing a celebration of Labour Day on May 1st with a picnic at Speakers’ Corner. The event, the group says, is “to express gratitude and thanks to the backbone of the world’s economy – her workers.”

The picnic is also to express solidarity with all workers of the world on the day.

If you’re attending the event, you are urged  to bring along your family and friends, some food and drinks, a mat, an umbrella and some writing materials.

The celebration will end with a group photo-taking session.
