The case of the "Asheville 11" accused of vandalism during the 2010 May Day protests reached an end yesterday, as three defendants pleaded guilty to misdemeanor vandalism charges and the other eight saw their charges dropped entirely in exchange for community service, the Asheville Citizen-Times reports.
Around 100 people showed up for a May Day rally this afternoon in Pack Square. Protesters focused better rights for workers, free education and opposed deportation of undocumented immigrants, among other issues. Police presence was light and the event remained peaceful. Photos by Max Cooper.
