The pictures following are from the Mayday picnic, on Quayside meadow, which started as a punk picnic, was joined by a 7-year old's birthday party (Happy Birthday Connor! Same age as Blair's government!), then a yurt and sound system turned up, followed by lots of random lancastrians with kids, dogs, cake, a solar airship etc etc. Lots of people out for a walk stopped by during the 8 hour sun-blessed event, and chilled, or read the information boards produced for the event, on the local resource centre, cooperatives, workers without bosses, direct action etc. A footie game struck up with crusty punks and 2 year olds and everything in between well represented.
Later in the evening there was a gig at the Gregson Community Centre, which was decorated with anarchist posters,. info boards and literature throughout, before some revellers sloped off to a free party near Kirkby Lonsdale... a 24 hour celebration of Beltane/International Workers Day!
