May Day demo in Milan and speechless labour

Mumtaz Hussain Khayal
MILAN (Italy): The first of May is a national, public holiday in many countries across the world, in most cases as “Labour Day”, “International Workers’ Day” or some similar name – although some countries celebrate a Labour Day on other dates significant to them, such as the United States, which celebrates Labour Day on the first Monday of September.
The date was chosen by a pan-national organization of socialist and communist political parties to commemorate the Haymarket affair, which occurred in Chicago on 4 May 1886. The 1904 Sixth Conference of the Second International, called on “all Social Democratic Party organizations and trade unions of all countries to demonstrate energetically on the First of May for the legal establishment of the 8-hour day, for the class demands of the proletariat, and for universal peace.
Labour Day was celebrated at Milan Wednesday. “Leftcom Organization and Lotta Comunista” organized this event. Thousands of local people joined this rally. People gathered at Porta Venezia, Metropolitan city Milan at 9 O’clock. Seventy-five percent of the local business was closed for Labour Day; however, some local shops were opened. Commando police, city police, local police, and vigilant intelligence personnel were around the rally. Pakistani-Italian national were also the part of this demonstration.
Even though there were thousands of people walked in this rally for sympathy, and the rights of labors, but somehow many of the skilled and unskilled labor were on their duties in Milan city Wednesday. Its international day for labours, but in most of the European countries, and the rest of the world, labor is not free and allowed to celebrate this day, and it seems meaningless rehearsal every year for labours. They cannot speak up for their rights. Because, they do not want to lose their jobs and unemployment rate is so high.
