Over 7,000 people demonstrated on May Day, 1 May 2015, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands; as this video shows. This demonstration of the Dutch trade union federation FNV against governmental austerity went to the Martin Luther King Park (where there was reggae and other music; see here).
Among the demonstrators were police, opposed to the Dutch government’s police wage policies; members of the Socialist Party and of other parties.
Here is another video on that demonstration in Amsterdam. See also here.

THE unity of the struggles of workers and youth across the USA was expressed last Friday in May Day demonstrations and rallies across the country centring on the demand for an end to low pay and for improved working conditions coming together with the demand for an end to police oppression and racism. Thousands of workers and young people marched under the banners of the ‘black lives matter’ campaign joining with trade unionists and low paid workers marching for the demand of a $15 an hour minimum wage and an end to the laws that permit the rich to avoid paying taxes on their wealth. In New York, two protests, the trade union organised May Day Parade and Rally and a demonstration by the organisation ‘Disarm NYPD’ (New York Police Department), converged in a powerful demonstration of solidarity with placards reading ‘Women need jobs with a liveable wage, not police terror’: here.
