UPDATE: Here is the lowdown on the protest set for next Sunday. Will you be there?
We received a tip from a reader that some businesses in downtown Annapolis are planning a visible protest and picket next Sunday to coincide with the May Day Basket competition. Initial reports indicate that there are at least 30 picketers signed up. The demonstration seems to be centered on downtown business support and not directed towards any cause or the May Day event.
We have not been able to obtain the specific details, but understand that several businesses have mobilized to make a very public statement about the situation on Sunday, May 1, 2011.
This is a developing story and we are trying to obtain the rest of the details. With a holiday weekend, it is difficult, but will have more information no later than Monday including a comment from the Mayor and the EDC.
