On Tuesday, May 1, the Occupy movement (in cooperation with the immigrants march and the annual NYC workers’ march) took part in a variety of May Day events, some with permits and others without. Photographer Brendon Stuart was there throughout the afternoon, snapping Tom Morello’s string -instrument Guitarmy, as well as the large Solidarity March from Union Square to the Financial District.
