May Day: Boston for Workers Rights Unite!
05 May 2008
Boston, Mass.--About 100 Anarchists, Socialists, Union Orgainzers, Immigrant Rights Workers and Anti-War activists gathered in Boston to celebrate and / or protest the issues of the day. It was hard to tell which was more prominent. During the march through the streets, the Second Line Social Aid and Pleasure Society Brass Band, certainly gave the event a celebratory feel, but at the rally at Boston Common, there were somber calls for human rights for immigrants, and better working conditions for all – citizens and immigrants alike.
