DemocracyNow.org - Several major unions joined with immigrant rights activists and tens of thousands of Occupy Wall Street protesters in New York City for a massive rally that marched to Wall Street. "I'm here to protect working families, struggling families, struggling individuals -- also known as the 99 percent -- to make sure our issues, our causes are not forgotten and we're not demonized," says Barbara Ingram-Edmonds of District Council 37 ASCME. Throughout the day teach-ins, pickets and wildcat protests took place across the city. We also speak with Baruch University professor Jackie DiSalvo about the history of May Day, dating back to the Haymarket massacre in Chicago on May 1, 1886.
