May Day Lunch – 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Free food courtesy of Food Not Bombs and CUPE 3908, fun performances, singing, soap-boxing, and an opportunity to bring our different struggles in our community into conversation with one another in recognition of May Day’s long and diverse history. Groups: bring and set up a table to disseminate literature, SWAG, and information as part of our celebration; creative banners, flags and art. This celebration is designed to encourage folks to take their lunch break as part of the global May Day actions – but will you return to work at the end of lunch break or join the global General Strike?

If you would like to perform or be part of the lunch time activities (i.e. perform a song, poem etc. or would like to bring food etc), please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
