Robert Harrington comes to his Midtown Manhattan office each day wearing a businessman's trenchcoat. At 65, he runs his own apparel-import business. But he decided to close shop on Tuesday, May 1.

Instead, he left his office to take part in the protests marking the 2012 May Day, the first to coincide with the Occupy movement. Harrington (pictured at left) says that he hasn't taken part in political protests since the Vietnam War era.
