Forside Den 1. maj: Historie og tradition / May Day: History and tradition Haymarket - And the Flag Was Still There. This memorial pays tribute to the Haymarket Riot of May 1886 (Chicago), an event that galvanized labor movements across the world. Sixty police officers were wounded and seven died as they tried to disperse a crowd of workers calling for an eight-hour work day. Shocked by the uprising, Chicago's leading citizens unleashed a furor that swept up four anarchists. Haymarket continues to be controversial in Chicago. Today, the old square is located in a less developed part of the city and only people interested in its history visit. The flag was likely put up, to ensure it would be included in pictures taken by these "radicals". Photo: Taken on August 5, 2007 by TRiver. (CC Haymarket - And the Flag Was Still There.
