MAYDAY! Rally in #Toronto

MAYDAY on Tuesday May 1 will bring a full day of protests organized by Occupy #Toronto, the May 1st Movement (M1M) and No One Is Illegal. Posters have been going up on light poles throughout the downtown core with the main rally at 4pm in Nathan Phillips Square.

There is supposed to be an Occupy Toronto chess game at noon, Occupy Gardens: Garden Party Potluck at 2pm at Queens Park, the Rally starting at 4pm and the March at 5pm at City Hall, a cultural celebration starting at 7pm at Alexandra Park (Dundas and Spadina) and a twenty four hour re-occupation (called "Occupy the Heart of the Beast") of a secret location.
Barriers are set up between City Hall and University Avenue and posted with notice under the trespass act. Apparently the Queen herself will remove any yurt that tries to set up shop in this area.

On University Avenue across from the American consulate and under the blossom trees, sits a police trailer loaded with fence.
