Occupy Guitarmy celebrating May Day around NYC today

Occupy Guitarmy

Here’s their press release in full:

Occupy Guitarmy Rocks May Day 2013 for Immigrant Worker Justice
First Anniversary of the Popular Ensemble that “Turns the Revolution up to 11″

This Wednesday, May 1st, the Occupy Guitarmy will gather in Bryant Park to celebrate their one-year anniversary and kickoff May Day with the Immigrant Worker Justice Tour that will wind its way through midtown stopping at corporations that are exploiting their workers.

The Guitarmy will continue their march to Union Square for a May Pole dance at 3PM, join the 99% rally at Union Square at 4PM, and then march down Broadway with the Fair Pay Ensemble: a group set to inspire and educate musicians and audiences about the deplorable working conditions in New York City live music venues. They will end their celebrations by singing the opening song with Occupy at the People’s Assembly in Foley Square.
Schedule of Occupy Guitarmy Events:

12 PM Bryant Park, Immigrant Worker Justice Tour
3 PM Union Square, May Pole Dance for Justice
5:30 PM Union Square to Foley Square, Solidarity March down Broadway
7 PM Foley Square Opening Occupy Wall Street People’s Assembly
7:30 Zuccotti Park Kimani Gray Memorial Assembly opening

The Occupy Guitarmy is an open, participatory musical group that was born out of Occupy Wall Street music working group. Last year, hundreds joined the Guitarmy in their May Day march and hundreds more participated in the 99 Mile March from Philadelphia to New York for economic justice.

We last heard from the Guitarmy in September.
