May Day Rally in Los Angeles

Occupy Los Angeles’ May Day rally at Pershing Square. At least, nine police helicopters hovered over the protesters with a sizable police presence on the ground surrounding the area.

It was really festive, calm, with Occupy Los Angeles organizers expressing solidarity with labor unions and other groups. Right after they reiterated that “no one should speak for you,” they handed out lyrics to some song and ordered everyone to sing it. I handed out the lyrics, “Here are some words for your mouth.”
