Glasgow May Day 2021, the event will be held online this year on
The theme of this year’s Glasgow may day is to extent universal protections, specifically free school meals and promotion of our campaign on free public transport. The idea is that universal protection of the NHS has been and is fundamental to our recovery, that by extending these protections we can tackle some of the inequalities and poverty in our city.
