Activists planning May Day demonstration in New London

New London — A coalition of activists plans to hold a political demonstration from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday in support of Black Lives Matter and immigrant, women's, LGBTQ and workers' rights.

The event, to be held on Parade Plaza downtown, will feature speakers from the local chapter of the ACLU-affiliated People Power initiative, the Immigration Advocacy and Support Center, Start Fresh, the International Socialist Organization, labor unions and others. The public is encouraged to bring signs to carry.

May 1 is International Workers Day, commemorating the 1886 Haymarket strike in Chicago. Since 2006, it also has been used as a day to march in support of immigrants.
