🌹 May Day Party 🌹
"The worker must have bread, but she must have roses, too" - Rose Schneiderman (1882 - 1972)
Workers deserve fair and equitable working conditions, but they also deserve joy, art, and beauty.
On May Day, 2022 we gathered at Bannerman Park for a celebration of workers rights. Hover over the photos below to see what brought these party-goers out. Click to open them in large view, and to see image descriptions. Photos by Tania Heath.
