Online Desk : The historic May Day will be observed
tomorrow in the country as elsewhere across the world with due respect
through various programmes.
The day is being observed across the globe since 1886 commemorating the
supreme sacrifices of the workers at Hay Market, Chicago, in the USA for
eight-hour working day and upholding the rights of the workpeople.
To press home their demands, working people had to sacrifice their
valuable lives in tragic bomb attacks and police atrocities on May 1, 1886
and the following days.
President M Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina issued separate
messages on the occasion of the historic May Day.
However, due to the global coronavirus pandemic, no govt. or private
programme has been kept on the occasion this year.
