MAY DAY 2016 MAKES IMPACT

May Day in London made a massive impact with over 14,000 joining the event in the sun. The event began on a high with Jeremy Corbyn and Frances O'Grady addressing the assembling crowd in Clerkenwell Green before it moved off to Trafalgar Square where another major line-up spoke along with a Turkish musician playing a May Day song. See PHOTOS in the Gallery.

The March led by the massive May Day banner, made by Chilean regugees in London aNd the Big Red Band grew as it headed towards Trafalgar Square where it joined an already large crowd.
