May Day

For over 100 years now May Day has been recognized in some countries of the world as the SECTION SEVEN Intonation pattern XIII. (LOW PRE-HEAD + ) HIGH RISE (+TAIL) II. (LOW PRE-HEAD + ) (HIGH HEAD+) HIGH RISE ( + TAIL)83 workers' day.

(LOW PRE-HEAD + ) HIGH RISE (+TAIL) II. (LOW PRE-HEAD + ) (HIGH HEAD+) HIGH RISE ( + TAIL)83 and urgent.

Last year's May Day in Britain broke new ground in two ways.

But it was more than a demonstration. It assumed the character of a national strike, involving hundreds of thousands of workers who downed tools in London and a SECTION SEVEN Intonation pattern XIII. (LOW PRE-HEAD + ) HIGH RISE (+TAIL) II. (LOW PRE-HEAD + ) (HIGH HEAD+) HIGH RISE ( + TAIL)83 number of other major cities.

It was the culmination of an unprecedented campaign directed against the Government's intentions to put the clock back a century and more on trade-union rights.

It was SECTION SEVEN Intonation pattern XIII. (LOW PRE-HEAD + ) HIGH RISE (+TAIL) II. (LOW PRE-HEAD + ) (HIGH HEAD+) HIGH RISE ( + TAIL)83 a high point in the continuous struggle of the trade unions for the unfettered right to use the strike weapon in furthering the interests of their membership.

It was a historic SECTION SEVEN Intonation pattern XIII. (LOW PRE-HEAD + ) HIGH RISE (+TAIL) II. (LOW PRE-HEAD + ) (HIGH HEAD+) HIGH RISE ( + TAIL)83 May Day not only in the role it played in achieving the immediate demand of retaining the sovereignty and independence of the unions.

Above all, the flexing of their muscles and the victory SECTION SEVEN Intonation pattern XIII. (LOW PRE-HEAD + ) HIGH RISE (+TAIL) II. (LOW PRE-HEAD + ) (HIGH HEAD+) HIGH RISE ( + TAIL)83 achieved the following July, gave the workers of Britain a new sense of confidence and a deeper understanding that one hour of action is worth more than a thousand hours SECTION SEVEN Intonation pattern XIII. (LOW PRE-HEAD + ) HIGH RISE (+TAIL) II. (LOW PRE-HEAD + ) (HIGH HEAD+) HIGH RISE ( + TAIL)83 of argument and pleas for justice.
