Today is the first Monday of May, the labour day holiday here in Queensland. As usual the unions organise a march about 12000 strong and as usual the theme is very anti-liberal, especially this year since the new industrial relations laws favour the commercial sector much more than the workers. At 10am the gathering started. As soon as the band finished warming up we were ready to go. As is to be expected there was lots of shouting. (these were my workmates back in the day, the Liqueur Hospitality and Misc Union) And the kids got involved too. Sometimes more than the parents! I assume this guy was in the middle of the fight to establish the laws which were recently changed. Since this is Australia there wouldn't be a gathering without a HUGE bbq (one or two by every union). And of course free beer. Which quickly went to people's heads. All in all a very good day.
