May Day 2020 Announcement 

Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, the May Day SA Collective has cancelled both the May Day 2020 Dinner and the May Day 2020 March due to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.

While we cannot celebrate May Day this year with the usual rallying and revelry, the SA May Day Collective would still like to acknowledge and celebrate May Day 2020 in some way, and we are inviting everyone to join us on Facebook for some online celebrations.

We have created an online event and we’re encouraging all supporters to accept the invitation and use the event page as a platform to share their May Day 2020 isolation celebrations by sharing photos, videos and messages of solidarity. We’re encouraging everyone to get in their May Day and/or Union gear, grab a bottle of May Day red and show us what you’re doing on May Day. We’re thinking video messages from Unions, musical performances, May Day fashion pics and photos of Union pets in their Union gear!

There is also a specially created May Day 2020 Spotify playlist available that supporters can add songs to and play on the night. We’d love people’s contributions so follow the link below and head over to Spotify to add your favourite pro-worker and pro-equality songs!

We will also be sharing a special video from the intended SA May Day Dinner Guest Speaker, Thomas Mayor, author of 'Finding the Heart of the Nation’ as well as other performances and May Day related content.

Head over to the SA May Day Facebook page for more details.

May Day Merchandise is available to purchase for the isolation-celebrations. See here for pricing. These items will be perfect to get you in the spirit of your May Day at-home celebration.

We also have a special offer "Solidarity in Solitary: May Day Celebration Value Pack" which includes all of the items pictured here, with your choice of t-shirt size (Small to XXL), for the bargain price of $60 (RRP $75).

Call Nikki at the MUA on 8447 1779 to organise payment by EFT and social distancing compliant pick-up!
