According to OccupyBoston , the group will mark May 1 — a day that celebrates workers internationally — with a call for people to strike, skip work, walk out of school and abstain from shopping and banking in support of the ’99 percent.’
In Boston, protests are scheduled to start at 7 a.m. for a “Financial District Block Party” at the intersection of Federal Street and Franklin Street, per the group’s website.
The day’s activities also will include a May Day rally at Boston City Hall Plaza at noon and a “Death of Capitalism Street Theater Funeral Procession” at 8 p.m "
