Guante will kick off tonight's OccupyMN march on TCF and Wells Fargo
Guante, the Minneapolis spoken word and hip-hop artist, writer, and activist, will be appearing at his second OccupyMN event tonight (he already performed on Sunday at a labor rally that also featured Mayda and Grant Hart) to help raise awareness of the movement and kick off a student-led march on the downtown Minneapolis banks.
"This one is different because it's student-led and student-organized, trying to tie in the issues of young people who are in debt from educational costs, lack of jobs and all that," he writes.
Guante performs a solo set at People's Plaza (a.k.a. the Government Plaza, 300 6th St. S. in downtown Minneapolis) at 5 p.m. today, and a student-led march on Wells Fargo and TCF Banks will start at 5:30.
