May Day

My May Day messages have always been filled with hope and this year is no different.

The international effort to cure paralysis is going ahead, but after three operations I hope you'll let me digress a little and talk about what spinal cord injury (SCI) has stolen from me.

One is May Day.

For many many years I was the one who got our troops together and took them over to the parade ground. I loved it.

That's not the case three surgeries later. Now I'm left with pain and fatigue and I don't know which is worse.

So this year I will let my colleague deal with May Day, but I know that I will lead my union's contingent at May Day in the future.

This is my hope for international solidarity.
