Video & photos of workers and communities who gathered in Dublin to march in solidarity on May day 2015.

Workers and communities gathered in Dublin to march in solidarity on May Day.

Sex workers marched alongside migrants, striking bus workers led the march. There were powerful speeches from a Dunnes worker recently on strike and a striking bus worker.

There was a strong contingent of striking bus workers from SIPTU. The Right2water campaign had groups from all over Dublin.

The marchers were met at Liberty Hall by The Spectacle of Defiance and Hope, a community group formed as a creative response to austerity, singing a spectacular version of The Internationale.

The event was hosted by the Dublin Council of Trade Unions.
