Obligatory May Day Video
Occupy Wall Street held a "General Strike" for May Day in New York City. Led by Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, the "Guitarmy" of a few thousand people noisily marched 28 blocks down Fifth Avenue toward Union Square Park.
Reason.tv was on the scene to speak with Morello, USMC Sgt Shamar Thomas (who became a viral video sensation after screaming at NYPD officers during an OWS protest last year), rival zombie marchers, and a few self-described lefties who've just had it with President Obama. (They admit it. Out loud. Who woulda thought?) It runs about 5 minutes.
Produced by Anthony L Fisher, with camera by Nathan Chaffetz, Sean McElwee and Fisher.
