May 1 marks International Workers' Day, better known as May Day.

Protests and peaceful rallies have become a part of this day, especially with the rise of social and economic turmoil worldwide in recent years; however, each country's citizens don't necessarily celebrate the day the same way.

Here's a glimpse at several May Day protests.
