04.29.2010 On Saturday, April 28th, the Occupy the Bridge May Day coalition announced that the Golden Gate Bridge Labor Coalition, which represents bridge, ferry, and bus workers in 14 bargaining units, had asked them to call off the bridge action and redirect all efforts towards supporting May Day strike actions and picket lines.
Listen now:
The decision to call off the Bridge Occupation angered many Occupy activists who had spent considerable time and resources organizing it, arranging transportation, medical and legal aid.

Others called for solidarity and at the 7 am Golden Gate Bridge Toll Plaza rally and picket lines to support the striking bridge, bus, and ferry workers.
