This coming Friday October 10th, in the afternoon, activist brass bands from around the country will descend on Downtown Crossing in Boston (meeting at 3 pm across from Macy’s) for a "Day of Action" in the campaign to raise the minimum wage.
From as far away as Seattle, Brooklyn and Montreal, these loud, colorful and fun-filled bands will “HONK! for $15.” They will use their powers of music and spectacle to bring the national fight for a $15/hour minimum wage to the doorsteps of local Boston establishments still refusing to pay their workers a living wage, earn paid sick time, or form a union. Details and updates on HONK!’s “Day of Action,” part of the HONK! Festival weekend activities, can be found specifically at
As of this writing, the HONK! bands participating in the “Day of Action” are: Artesian Rumble Arkestra (from Olympia, WA), Chaotic Insurrection Ensemble (from Montreal), Chaotic Noise Marching Corps (from Seattle, WA), Emperor Norton’s Stationary Marching Band (from Somerville, MA), Leftist Marching Band (from Portsmouth, NH), and Rude Mechanical Orchestra (Brooklyn, NY).

This list is for discussion of plans for peace and justice work in the Greater Boston area by member groups of United for Justice with Peace. 

Policies for the list are posted at
