NYSUT political action leaders will join members from a variety of labor unions and other community activists on Friday to show support for the Occupy Albany events. The vigil will run from 6 to 7:30 p.m. along Washington Ave, near the Capitol building.
It’s being called a candlelight vigil, but don’t bring them. Bring flashlights or your cellphone with the lighter attachment. (Here’s link to get app if you don’t already have it.)
I’m a sucker for vigils. In case you missed Liza Frenette’s post on our May 9 vigil to bear witness to the pain of the program cuts required because of the state budget passed that April. Here’s a look back at the event in photos and video.
