I received this email from an activist:
Dear Bail Out the People friends,

ALL OUT for May Day 
Saturday, May 1 – Union Square, 14th St, NYC – Noon 

Being at Union Square on May 1, many thousands strong will be an important part of overturning racist, anti-immigrant legislation just passed in Arizona. This is an intense week. We have the ability to send a powerful message of outrage and solidarity.

Here is the schedule:

• Come by any afternoon or evening to pick up full color, glossy May 1 Union Square flyers and posters for last minute distributions.

• Help on the Wed, Thurs 2pm to 8pm work sessions. Thousands of signs, placards and banners have to be put together. Work session Friday 11AM - 6PM

• Wed at 4pm major press conference of immigrant activists at Union Square, 14th St & Broadwayorganized by Rebel Diaz and May 1 Workers and Immigrant Rights Coalition with the demand BOYCOTT ARIZONA

 Wed at 6:30 at 55 West 17th St, 5th Floor, May 1 Workers and Immigrant Rights Coalition Last Meeting before May Day

• On Thursday, April 29 there is a major union rally at 4pm called Show Down on Wall Street. Gather at City Hall for Rally, then March. Help us distribute thousands of May 1 Union Square flyers and signs. Come to the office at 55 W 17th St by 2pm or meet us and pick up material for distribution at Murray & Broadway, across from City Hall from 3:30 on. (Call or TEXT preferred to 646-353-2708 or 201-388-7428 to find us in City Hall area or at Wall Street.)

See you SATURDAY – MAY DAY - NOON at Union Square, 14th St & Broadway.

We need help from 7 am and on through the day with set-up, sound, security and distributions.
