Marx Memorial Library's annual May Day was a great success. Over 280 came through the door on International Workers' Day. We welcomed visitors on tours of our historic building and with a special display of our newly digitised poster collection. At midday guest speakers addressed the crowds from the steps of Marx House. We heard from Harsev Bains, MML trustee, on the centenary of the Amritsar Massacre, and from the Venezuelan Ambassador, Rocio Maneiro. She addressed the demonstration announcing that 'the Venezuelan people will defend their revolution'.
