Industrial Workers of the World members joined with trade unions and community groups throughout Dublin today marking the annual May Day March and Rally organised by the Dublin Council of Trade Unions.
The main theme this years march and rally for the DCTU focused on the ongoing war in Ukraine. Taking up the rear of the march which weaved its way through central Dublin a spokesperson for the IWW Ireland Branch said "The IWW have taking part in May Day demonstrations around the country and today here in Dublin which is probably the largest.
"This year the IWW has again worked with a number of international revolutionary unions and environmental groups as part of Global May Day in an attempt to raise awareness around the theme of climate justice and class struggle.
"For ourselves this forms part of a week of action around this years Global May Day. Over the next few days a series of online events have been organised from talks to film screenings. We would encourage our members and supporters to take part."
Following today's Dublin May Day march and rally we gathered at the James Connolly monument near Liberty Hall and were join by several members of Organise and other non aligned activists.
