VIDEO BY: GRIGORY BOYARISKI FOR THE MAY DAY PROJECT
Here we talk (via Skype) with Grigory Boyariski about May Day in St. Petersburg, Russia. He has participated in May Day since he was little boy and explains how he has seen the “tradition” change over the years. This video is part of the May Day Project.
MAY DAY PROJECT:
In more than 140 countries, May 1 is celebrated as a workers’ holiday. May Day commonly sees organized street demonstrations and celebrations by hundreds of thousands of working people throughout the world. In the United States May Day has become a day to mobilize undocumented workers for immigration rights. Amanda Martinez and Alba Mora-Roca talked to observers in Russia, Venezuela, Mexico, China and elsewhere to find out how those celebrations differed according to geography.
