Lynn groups plan a May Day march

LYNN — Local organizations Highlands Coalition, New Lynn Coalition and others are organizing a Tuesday, May 1 march, 6 p.m. at City Hall.

Highlands members David Gass said May Day marches date to 1886 to celebrate the struggles and victories of working people throughout the world to achieve peace, justice, and prosperity.

“We have joined the march in Lynn for the past 10 years. Along with the New Lynn Coalition, we say no to racism and union busting and yes to immigrant rights, to housing as a human right and to a living wage and fair treatment for all workers,” Gass said.

A planning session for the march will be Sunday, April 29, 4-6 p.m. at 112 Exchange St., including sign making, march schedule review, marshall and chant leader training. Pizza will be provided for meeting attendees.
