Occupy Wall Street Guitarmy assembles in Bryant Park for May DayPolitics New York, United States - 01 May 2012
Occupy Wall Street's "Guitarmy" gather in Bryant Park, in preparation for their march to Union Square on May 1, 2012. Tom Morello, guitarist for Rage Against the Machine, organized the "guitarmy," calling for 10 000 guitar players to join him in a performance at an Occupy Wall Street rally, which took place later that day. In addition to his performance, Morello also delivered a speech to Occupy protesters.
The Occupy Wall Street protests in New York City were part of the movement's nationwide May Day, which called upon the 99% to refuse to attend work or school, and to avoid consumer spending.
