May Day music & dance

The May Day 2009 rally and march here in NYC on Friday was a sopping, soaking, sloshing success, with not a spirit dampened despite a near-constant downpour. The single most striking note, it seemed to me, was unity, with immigrants from every continent and those born here joining together to demand full rights for all workers.

As the rally at Union Square ended, the band Kofre pumped everybody up as we marched off down Broadway toward Federal Plaza.
Additional delight was provided by this adorable troupe of little dancers.
