Socialist surrealism

May Day, or the International Workers’ Day, is celebrated around the world on May 1 to honour the working community. In Sri Lanka what is traditionally a day of rest and celebration has evolved into a highly politicised display with political parties and trade unions organising enormous rallies and processions to serve as shows of strength. Each faction and party vies with the other to produce more supporters, to fill larger venues, to make louder speeches and bolder promises to workers. This year too, all the major parties and trade unions have made elaborate arrangements to hold May Day rallies and meetings today at a variety of locations around the country.
