May 1st International Workers Day

Thousands of people marched in Auckland on May Day against mining national parks.

There were also strikes and pickets outside JB Hi Fi stores in Auckland and Wellington as part of Unite union’s $15 minimum wage campaign.

The tradition May Day march in Auckland took place later in the day. The march has been held in Auckland every year since the 1970s.
