Every May 1, workers from across the world celebrate May Day, otherwise known as the International Workers’ Day.

In many countries, the day is declared a public holiday. This allows workers to hold rallies and marches, usually, to demand better working conditions and, sometimes, to make political statements.

This year’s celebrations have not been different. See the gallery above to see how the day has been marked in different countries.
