A photograph of anti-war demonstrators in London on May Day, taken in May 1936 by Harold Tomlin for the Daily Herald on 3rd May 1936.

The 1930s saw conflict that the League of Nations - forerunner of the United Nations - was unable to contain. Pacifism had strong support within the western democracies, with many remembering the horrors of world war one. In Paris, 1889, the International Working Men's Association declared May Day a holiday for the workers of the world. Socialists, trades unions and labour movements have continued to celebrate May Day ever since.
