FDP Update #1: Mayday March Begins
01 May 2002
FDP Mayday March has Just Begun
300-400 present
The opening march of the Festival del Pueblo, a march celebrating international worker's day, has just departed from Park St.

Dozens of black, red and black, green and black, and purple and black flags are present, as well as banners reading "For Anarchism, For a Free Humanity," "From Class War to Social Revolution, NEFAC," "No More Prisons," "Class War,"IWW," and many more.

The police presence is about average for a Boston Mayday march, although maybe a little larger, and there are a fair amount of undercover officers running around, as well as cops on bikes and horses.

The turnout is good, considering that over 50 people arrived within the first half hour of the welcoming center opening and many did make it in time. Furthermore, the bookfair is being set up at the Curry Student Center (Northeastern U. t-stop on Green line) as we speak, requiring dozens of organizers and tablers.

It looks like it will be a great festival, with the numbers only growing, and many more fun and exciting events yet to come.
