All of Occupy Wall Street’s May Day actions (as well as the actions of participating progressive groups around New York City) converged on Union Square at around 4:30 pm this afternoon.
The crowd swelled from a few hundred to thousands as protesters came in from all parts of the city.
When they got there they were greeted by union leaders (from Transit Works to Taxi Drivers), immigration advocates, and musicians. They were all there to get the crowd hyped for their last march to Lower Manhattan.
The two biggest names on the program were Das Racist and Immortal Technique. Check out clips of their performances below.
Immortal Technique, who said “we will not forfeit this country to those that destroyed its economy,” before taking the mic.
