Comrades from Punalippu reports on actions that took place in both Helsinki [] and Tampere [] for May 1st – International Worker’s Day.

Helsinki: Thousands participated to traditional trade-union march on 1st of May in Helsinki. Broadly speaking, the slogans commented on international issues as well as the on-going negotiations to form a new government, including slogans against NATO, climate change, the far-right and cuts.

Also, a small Maoist contingent participated with main slogan “Everything without power is illusion!” and holding high the red flag with hammer and sickle as well as the flag of the International Communist League (ICL).

The contingent also distributed the May Day statement of the ICL. The contingent drew a lot of positive attention, including enthusiastic comments for the use of the hammer and sickle (the Maoists were, yet again, the only ones, who proudly carried the hammer and sickle).

Combative shouts – such as “Long live International Communist League!”, “Viva Marx! Viva Lenin! Viva Mao Tse-tung!”, “International solidarity! Proletarian revolution!” and “No to Marin, no to Orpo, no to Purra and others! Only revolution leads to freedom!” (Marin, Orpo and Purra are leaders of different reactionary parties: Social-Democrats, National Coalition Party and the Finns Party, respectively) – was to some extent echoed by the masses, and the desperate opportunists tried to cover them with their pacifist shouts.

Posters and leaflets were also distributed for May 1st:

Tampere: Once again the 1st of May was full of events and revolutionary spirit in Tampere.

Early in the morning, revolutionaries had organised a visit of honor to the Red Memorial in Kalevankangas cemetery. During the events, the revolutionary guard of honor held high the flags of the International Communist League. A speech was delivered which emphasised the necessity of armed revolution. The speech explicated how in China the people took power by arms under the leadership of Chairman Mao, and how only the armed masses led by the Communist Parties were able to conquer power for the proletariat in numerous countries of Central and Eastern Europe after the Second World War. The revolutionaries sang The Internationale and the event concluded with shouted slogans: Long live proletarian internationalism!”and Death to revisionism!”

Fl5 090523

After the visit of honor, was the traditional 1st of May march, which was organized by the local trade-union central, and this year the march was biggest in many years. An Anti-imperialist bloc participated, proudly holding high the red flags of the ICL and several other organizations. Throughout the whole march, the Anti-imperialist bloc shouted loud and clear combative slogans such as: “Viva Marx! Viva Lenin! Viva Mao Tse-tung!”, “Down with oppression and imperialism! People’s War until Communism!”, “International solidarity, continuos struggle, revolution!”, “Down with Yankee-NATO!” and “Long live the International Communist League!”.

The Blue-and-Black Movement, which maintains the tradition of the fascist Lapua Movement of the interwar era, had also organized its own event in the 1st of May. The event was named “White May Day”, and its numbers of participants faced an extreme decline. Last year it had, according to different estimates, couple of hundred participants and sympathizers, but this year the same event gathered barely 30 fascists.

Once again it was witnessed that the Reds are the most combative antifascists, as a small but combative group of red antifascists, holding high the flags of the ICL, managed to get to the very proximity of the fascist horde shouting uninterruptedly their antifascist slogans. The reactionary police forces of the Republic of Finland did everything they could to secure the continuation of the fascist event and started to harass the action of the red antifascists.

See the full report of all the Maoist actions and pictures for May 1st in Denmark on Socialist Revolution.

Socialist Revolution reports that this year marked the last time the ”Great prayer day” was spent as a holiday. Danish imperialism decided to remove a holidary in order to pay for the militarisation of the country. Activists from Anti-Imperialist Collective marked the day by going to the streets to distribute leaflets against the removal of the holiday and against the militarisation of the country.

A manifestation against the so-called ”ghetto-law” was organised by various organisations in Copenhagen. Many participated. Speeches were held, songs were sung and food was organised. Activists from Anti-Imperialist Collective also participated, distributing leaflets against the ghetto-law. The leaflets put emphasis on that the ghetto-low highlights the question on who has state power in the country and that the Danish state is only for the rich and people should therefore not count on the ready-made state mechanisms to get rid of the ghetto-law.
