Friday, May 1 is Dia del Trabajo in Mexico and a national holiday. All government offices, schools, diplomatic missions and many stores will close. Many towns and villages hold morning May Day parades through their centers. Guadalajara’s parade usually features labor unions and workers’ organizations, some of whom take the opportunity to highlight Mexico’s inequalities. Department stores, shops in malls and most restaurants will remain open. The Reporter will be on sale at almost all its usual locations.
