May Day March 2005

2005 May Day MarchCIVIC PARK NEWCASTLE – Newcastle Trades Hall enjoyed the biggest and best May Day march in decades when Save Our Rail joined the march from Civic Park to the Workies this year. Marchers were blessed with a lovely autumn day and the carnival atmosphere was amplified by stirring music from the Scottish Pipe Band, our own university tom toms and soul-stirring chants.

More than half of the marchers chose to march behind Save Our Rail banner, and we were honoured by the participation of five political groups, at least three unions, Newcastle University students and hundreds of passionate supporters.
