«Pope Francis made a May Day speech in St Peter’s Square, saying unemployment was the product of a focus on profits over social justice. The Pope called on European leaders to “to make every effort to relaunch the labor market."»

The media didn't cover the May Day marches. The revolution will never be televised.

May Day is great but Marxists try to control it, they violently despise differences in opinion.
