Workers March in Cities Across the World to Mark May Day

HeadlineMay 02, 2018

Tuesday was May Day, or International Workers’ Day, and hundreds of thousands of workers took to the streets worldwide. Major mobilizations were held in Havana, Cuba; Paris, France; Manila, the Philippines; Jakarta, Indonesia; Istanbul, Turkey; and in Puerto Rico, where police attacked protesters demanding an end to austerity and U.S. colonial rule. We’ll have more on the protests in Puerto Rico, including a special report from the streets, later in the broadcast.
