02.05.2012 May Day Demonstration in Khabarovsk

More than 40 thousand people joined the Demonstration dedicated to Spring and Labor Day that took place in Khabarovsk on May, 1.

The demonstrators' column, which consisted of representatives of the city and region administration, associations, trade union organizations, educational and medical institutions, cultural and arts workers, students of secondary and higher education institutions and ordinary citizens, marched the main street from Komsomolskaya to Lenin Square and turned to Pushkin street.

May 1 used to be an International Workers' Day during the Soviet era. In 1992, the name was changed to the Day of Spring and Labor but it still remains a national holiday.
