Of course the MayDay marches and rallies are scheduled across Scotland, with the biggest in Glasgow on the 4 May. The main speaker will be author and commentator, Owen Jones. The march assembles in George Square at 11.30 with a collection for food banks in Glasgow. It rallies in the O2 Academy.
Elsewhere there is a book launch for a new print of From the Calton to Catalonia, a fundraising comedy afternoon for Scottish Left Review, a social for Cuba and an appreciation of UCS cartoonist and author, Bob Starret.
