Thousands of marchers gathered in Hamburg on May Day to call for more workers’ rights, while protesters in Turkey were met with police batons and water cannon.
In Russia on Thursday, marchers called for economic equality, and in Cuba residents hoped their president would offer up more change.
1 May is known in Germany and elsewhere as the unofficial International Workers’ Day and is typically marked with rallies that can sometimes turn violent.
About 30,000 people participated in rallies around Moscow, Russian police officials said.
