SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — May Day protests may disrupt the morning commute in at least one major U.S. city as labor, immigration and Occupy activists rally support on the international workers’ holiday.
Demonstrations, strikes and acts of civil disobedience are being planned around the country in the most visible organizing effort by anti-Wall Street groups since Occupy encampments came down in the fall.
While protesters are backing away from a call to block San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, bridge district ferry workers say they’ll strike Tuesday to shut down morning ferry service.
In New York, organizers have called for protesters to block one or more bridges or tunnels connecting Manhattan to New Jersey and other parts of the city.
In Los Angeles, demonstrators are planning to take to the streets to champion immigrant rights.
