Occupy Wall Street, Labor & Immigrant Rights Allies Announce May Day Performances: Tom Morello, Dan Deacon, Immortal Technique, Das Racist, Bobby Sanabria and more to Play in NYC

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

What: Occupy Wall Street and its allies in the organized labor and immigrant rights movements are excited to announce that on May 1st, Tom Morello, Dan Deacon, Immortal Technique, Das Racist, Bobby Sanabria and other special guests yet to be announced will be performing on stage at the May Day rally in Union Square, Manhattan.

When: Tuesday, May 1st, 12pm 5:30pm (see specific timing details below)

Where: Bryant Park & Union Square, Manhattan, NYC

At 12pm, Tom Morello will arrive at Bryant Park to enlist 1,000 guitarists, string players, and singers to take part in the Occupy Guitarmy. After a rehearsal of Woody Guthries This Land Is Your Land, Sergio Ortegas El Pueblo Unido, Willie Niles One Guitar, The Nightwatchmans World Wild Rebel Song, and the traditional spiritual We Shall Not Be Moved, the Occupy Guitarmy will depart from Bryant Park at 2pm, march through midtown Manhattan and arrive at Union Square at 4pm, culminating in their performance on stage with Tom Morello. Dan Deacon, Immortal Technique, Das Racist, Bobby Sanabria and other special guests yet to be announced will take the stage after Tom Morellos set.

On May Day, International Workers Day, the 99% will take to the streets and reclaim our communities. Well demand economic justice from the major institutions of government and industry who refuse to step forward and deliver a just society. No Work, No School, No Shopping, No Housework, No Compliance. May Day will be another important step forward in the growth of a resistance movement which has captured international headlines and countless imaginations since the occupation of Liberty Square on September 17th, 2011.

Occupy Wall Street is part of an international people powered movement fighting for economic justice in the face of neoliberal economic practices, the crimes of Wall Street, and a government controlled by monied interests. #OWS is the 99% organizing to end the tyranny of the 1%.

We have our fingers crossed.

Only "RT" will cover it..but, let's make it WORK! Eventually if one throws enough "spaghetti against the wall" it STICKS!

Gonna take a lot of time! But...worth it.

3. You can probably support OWS or a group closer to you in some way from wherever you are.
For example, Occupy Boston--the first occupiers to call themselves the 99%--is asking for donations and volunteers.

6. Sorry, I assumed it was the Occupy movement that you wanted to support.

Did not pick up that your post was specifically about guitar music festivals.

Did you get to Coachella?

Lots of other stuff going on in L.A. http://occupylosangeles.org/
