Pre-May Day Rally
Friday, April 25th, 6:00 p.m.
Occupy Kensington's second annual pre-May Day rally takes place this Friday in Kensington Plaza, the outdoor community space on Beverley Road, in front of Walgreens.
The speakout aims to provide a platform for activists and campaigns in this neighborhood. Issues of concern are
- a worker's right to a liveable wage and decent working conditions,
- providing children with a quality education--not one focused on high stakes testing,
- fair and inclusive immigration reform, and
- protecting the environment from further harm.
Speakers have been lined up from the Golden Farm boycott, Green Party of Brooklyn, immigrant rights movement, and Change the Stakes as well as parents who opted their kids out of this year's high stakes tests.
