Bay Area Celebrates May Day
Wed Apr 28 2004
May Day by the Bay
May Day 2004: People Organizing to Win Employment Rights(POWER), Chinese Progressive Association, the Day Labor Program of San Francisco, and other grassroots community groups came together in an inspirational show of unity and power to celebrate May Day and international worker's rights. Demands were made to end the U.S. occupation of Iraq, to stop intervention in Haiti, and to respect immigrant and worker's rights. Targets included the Disney Corporation and Levis. Photos
Out of the Cubicles, Into the Streets! - About 50 people converged on Yerba Buena Gardens to celebrate May Day by starting a street party in front of the Sony Metreon. They called for people to leave the spectacle of commerce and consumption behind so they could create their own adventures and fun in the streets of San Francisco, instead of watching actors doing so on the big screens in the Metreon. Four people were arrested by SFPD for various alleged offenses committed while dancing in the streets.
