Occupy Wall Street movements throughout the world will participate in a General Strike on May 1 in honor of International Workers’ Day (a.k.a. May Day). Das Racist, Dan Deacon, Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello (a.k.a. The Nightwatchman), Immortal Technique, and Bobby Sanabria will perform during a rally in New York’s Union Square, beginning at 4:00 p.m. More performers will be announced.
Morello will also lead a “Guitarmy” of 1,000 guitarists, string players, and singers that will march from New York’s Bryant Park, through midtown Manhattan, down to Union Square, culminating in a performance at 4 p.m.
A Guitarmy, huh? Oh, of course! Because Occupy is just like the Arab Spring. This is war, people! Grab those trombones and fight the power!
