The Service Employees International Unionâ€™s (SEIU) plan to host a â€œTake Back Labor Day Festivalâ€ at the foot of the Republican National Convention on September 1st from noon to 7pm at Harriet Island Regional Park in St. Paul, Minnesota. Lupe Fiasco, Mos Def, Billy Bragg & Atmosphere have just been added to the bill, joining Steve Earle, Allison Moorer, and Tom Morello & friends.
The festival will feature a concert, a YouTube station, a childrenâ€™s area, ad a large audience-participation art project. â€œTake Back Labor Dayâ€ hopes to bring attention to the achievements of working men and women.
