Skylight Books joins Occupy actions for May Day
Long known as International Workers Day, May 1 has become a day for rallies nationwide in support of the Occupy movement, which has been lying low since protests last year. One is taking place in downtown Los Angeles.
The bookstore will be closed from 2 to 5 p.m. in support of the Occupy movement.
On its website, the bookstore writes:
Gather! Strike! Sing!...
Skylight is your labor hall for the day. Need a place to rest? Bring a lunch and a friend and stop by to check out our displays on labor history. We’ll also have a full roster of events that are happening throughout the city, so come find out how you can participate.
