Occupy Wall Street held a “General Strike” to commemorate May Day in New York City. Led by Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, the “Guitarmy” of a few thousand people noisily marched 28 blocks down Fifth Avenue toward Union Square Park.

Reason.tv was on the scene to speak with Morello, USMC Sgt. Shamar Thomas (who became a viral video sensation after screaming at NYPD officers during an OWS protest last year), rival zombie marchers, and a few self-described lefties who’ve just had it with President Obama.

What you’ll notice, is this looks nothing like a tea party. The comments being made be some of the people attending the march is rather revealing, even if we can recognize that they likely do not represent 99% of those who were there.
