Russia: Labour Unions On Mayday Anti-Poverty Campaign

The city's labour unions are on a dynamic Mayday campaign for public economic rights and against mounting poverty. The Moscow Trade Union Federation called the public for a rally under wage-rise mottos, and intends to gather 25,000 opposite the mayoral office. Mayor Yuri Luzhkov and Mikhail Shmakov, Independent Russian Trade Union Federation president, are expected to address the rally, to be attended by municipal officers and federal parliamentarians. Left oppositionists are arranging a public demonstration to the city heart. The Communist Party, the Movement in Army Support, Labour Moscow and some other organisations applied for a rally to gather 10,000 in protest against government economic policies, skyrocketing prices and public impoverishment. The Moscow Communist League is also making a rally in the city centre.
