May Day

34-year-old Laura Smallwood collapsed with a neck injury on Wednesday.
Demonstrators in Paris clashed with riot police, while in Istanbul over 80 protesters were arrested. In Manila, activists burned a large effigy of President Rodrigo Duterte. Originally celebrated in the UK as a recognition of changing seasons, May Day has come to be linked with International Workers’ Day and global, large-scale protests for workers' rights.
It's more than just maypoles and lie-ins.
To be fair, the Bank Holiday is quite a big perk though.
