May Day in Portsmouth – 01/05/11

‘There were a number of reasons why we held the march on Sunday.

‘One because it was May Day – a bank holiday the government wants to move.

‘We believe it is a significant day for workers and we want to keep the tradition going. Another reason is because we oppose the cuts that the government have issued.

‘More and more people have either lost their jobs or a service has been lost, and that is what we’re protesting against.

‘Only recently Queen Alexandra Hospital, in Cosham, has announced it will have to lose staff.

‘There are alternatives this government can look at doing instead of cutting.”
