Workers of the world, Mobilize!

1.mai i Bodø

International workers day, May 1st. It is celebrated in almost every country, except for the United States (and maybe a few others). They decided to be very special and have their own labour day in september, I think. Or maybe october.

This years May 1st. I spent in Bodø, for the first time. The day is marked here, in the same way as everywhere else in the country. But when the demonstrators walk around the downtown area, the route they chose is completely stripped of logic. I mean, how hard can it be to find a long line of people, probably 500 of them, with their own band, walking around in Bodø. Well, it was harder than I thought, as I was walking around with my camera. Their main parole this year you can see printed on this guy’s t-shirt: Mobilize!
