Wednesday’s Pictures in the News begins with May Day events from around the globe. In Los Angeles,  marchers gather at Los Angeles Plaza Historic District for a rally; in Indonesia, female porters earn their living carrying fruit, vegetables and dry goods in baskets strapped to their backs; and in England, members of the Cam Valley Morris Men dance at a May Day dawn celebration in front of St. Michael’s Tower in Glastonbury. Although more synonymous with International Workers’ Day, or Labor Day, May Day or Beltane is celebrated by druids and pagans as the beginning of summer and the chance to celebrate the coming of the season of warmth and light.

In Colorado, Sonja Semion and Courtney Law became one of the first same-sex couples to be issued a civil union license at a midnight ceremony in the Denver Office of the Clerk and Recorder. Colorado is the eighth state to have civil unions or similar laws implemented, permitting unmarried couples, gay and heterosexual, the ability to form civil unions.

Elsewhere, officials remove a plane part that was discovered wedged between an apartment building and a mosque in New York that authorities believe is from one of the two hijacked airliners that brought down the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001; young women perform during open tryouts for a spot with the Rockettes in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular in Radio City Music Hall; and former President George W. Bush meets with local school children picked to be the first public visitors to his library on the day the George W. Bush Presidential Library opens for the first time to the public on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

Add stops in Australia, China and Anaheim to round out the report.
