Monday 1 May / 11.30 a.m. / New Square, Cambridge CB1
Our friends on the Cambridge and District Trades Council have organized a rally and celebrations on May Day, International Workers' Day. There'll be speeches by trade unionists and by the Labour Party candidate for mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, Kevin Price, as well as arts, music, and children's activities.
Sunday 1 May / 12 midday / Parker's Piece, Cambridge CB1
To mark International Workers' Day, our friends in Cambridge Unite Community will hold a rally on Parker's Piece against the policies that worsen our city's urgent housing problem. In protest at soaring prices and rents as well as agents' exploitative practices, we'll raise a tent city on the common to demand more council housing, an end to the right-to-buy which eats away that stock, and rent controls in the private sector. Bring a tent if you have one!
