The police are out in force. Tons of people are clustering around City Hall Park. And the music is blaring, the Rocky theme and “Get ready, ’cause here I come.”
Right outside our window, activists organized by the AFL-CIO are getting ready to rally about financial regullatory reform, calling for “Wall Street accountability, the creation of good jobs now, and an end to predatory lending practices.”
Organizers say they expect some 10,000 protesters to gather in City Hall Park, where AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka, who’s been all over the news shows these days, and others will address the crowd.
