In New York, Occupy Wall Street will join scores of labor organizations observing May 1
, traditionally recognized as International Workers’ Day. They plan marches from Union Square to Lower Manhattan
and a “pop-up occupation” of Bryant Park on Sixth Avenue, across the street from Bank of America’s Corp.’s
“We call upon people to refrain from shopping, walk out of class, take the day off of work and other creative forms of resistance disrupting the status quo,” organizers said in an April 26 e-mail.
