Boom Boom brought up Occupy May Day (quite rightly) on the "Occupy" thread, but I thought it was time to re-open the Mayday! thread, started back in 2007 (an annual recurrence). http://fete1ermai.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/1ermaiaffichemontreal.pdf
Here our May Day march is starting at Parc Molson, due east of where I live:
Rassemblement à 18 h au parc Molson, à l'angle des rues d'Iberville et Beaubien, suivi d'une fête au théâtre Plaza à 20h, au 6505 rue St-Hubert
To get to that park, métro Beaubien, bus 18 east. One could also take the Iberville bus (think it is number 94) north from métro Frontenac or south from métro Iberville, but it is very infrequent, while the 18 is one of the "10 minutes or less" buses. It is also walkable from métro Iberville.
I have no idea of the route, as it takes no more than 30 minutes to walk from Molson Park to the Plaza Theatre, even slowly. The theatre (a popular show venue) is very close to Beaubien métro.
Here is a blog (in French) by the May Day coalition here: http://fete1ermai.wordpress.com/
The huge Common Front strike - General Strike of 1972 was 40 YEARS AGO!!!! (I feel very old).
I'm just translating one statement from this year's Premier mai callout:
..voulons vivre dans un monde pacifique et écologique, où l’amélioration du transport collectif est bien plus importante que le renouvellement de la flotte d’avions furtifs.
...want to live in a peaceful and ecological world, where improving public transport is far more important than renewing the flotilla of stealth planes.
