Radio Sweden May Day Special

Welcome to our May day Special on Radio Sweden. Since 1939, today has been celebrated as a National holiday in Sweden, but dating further back, to 1890, it’s also been known as Labour day, when workers marched and held speeches around the country, demanding Labour rights such as an eight hour day.


Over the next half hour in this Radio Sweden Special, Dave Russell looks back at the history of Sweden’s Porcelain Industry in the town of Gustavsberg; it’s rise and fall and how a worker’s co-operative improved the lives of generations of families there from the 1930’s onwards.
