*Monday, September 1, 2008- Happy Labor Day!

T**he 24th Annual Bread and Roses Festival!!* Labor Day, September 1, 
2008 will mark the 24th annual Bread and Roses Festival! We will 
celebrate Lawrence's labor history and ethnic diversity, and 
particularly the historic, heroic events of 1912, the Bread and Roses 
Strike. We celebrate with a variety of music and dance, poetry and 
drama, ethnic food, historical demonstrations, and walking and trolley 
tours, all on or starting from Lawrence's Common. We also host 
organizations continuing the struggle for social justice today. Bread 
and Roses is the only festival in the region which celebrates the true 
spirit of Labor Day, in the most appropriate location, the site of the 
Bread and Roses Strike. And it is the only broadly multicultural 
festival in Lawrence, the Immigrant City.
