March on Wall St April 30 2010

Earlier in the day about 100 members of the National People's Action occupied a midtown building housing JP Morgan Chase. Later they joined allies and converged on City Hall Park at 4pm for a pre-march Rally.

At the rally we listened to speakers from PSC, AFL-CIO, UFT, NAACP, GOLES, and other community groups.

All calling for good safe jobs, punishment for predatory lenders, and relief for those losing their homes to foreclosures.

The Retail Action Project gets angry when workers are not respected.

Assemblage of assemblages

Usually I photograph my assemblages in "natural" setting, outside, on the street, in nature preserve, on a mailbox, on a desk, or bureau, etc. They are always in the context of another space. This is my attempt to isolate them from physical space but with each other.

A short rally at Union Square, then marched across 14th st.

The Rude Mechanical Orchestra helped make the march radical and festive.

Independent Workers Movement ~April 18

I love my neighborhood, I can always depend on it to provide someway for me to avoid labor studies readings. Today there was an Independent Workers Movement rally and march. The demands of the marchers were some of my favorite issues:
  • End the theft of our salaries by employers
  • End the racist raids against immigrants
  • Citizenship or legalization for all
  • Stop Police harassment of: day laborers, all street vendors and of youth
  • For the unity of families and for our children
  • End homophobia

We marched from Broadway and 69th St to Junction and Roosevelt, with a short rally at 83rd and Roosevelt, and a longer rally at Junction and Roosevelt.

Some of the groups participating were:

Queens Day Laborers; Philippine Forum; Bayan NYC; Sisa Pakari Labor Center ; Queens Street Vendors Union; People’s Organization for Progress NYC Chapter; International Socialist Organization; Million Worker March Movement; LGBT Equality Coalition of Queens; Latino Students of NYU; May 1st Coalition; Pakistan-USA Freedom Forum
