Today is May Day – an historic day of protest and action for the working class. This year, in light of the Occupy movement, many are hopeful of the resurgence this day can bring in the fight for national against economic injustice.
Stay tuned to all the latest developments at Mother Jones, who – in conjunction with Media for the 99 percent – is providing an interactive map that tracks city gatherings, news articles, and breaking arrests.
