‘May Day’ Marches to Take Over Downtown Sunday

EGP—Downtown Los Angeles streets will be filled with protesters, chants and drums in what has become an annual family-friendly pro-immigration reform march held on May 1st, internationally observed as a day to honor workers.

Southern California Immigration Coalition, comprised of over 50 organizations, will begin assembling for the march at 10am at Broadway and Olympic where an opening rally will be held.

At noon, activists and participants will head north on Broadway to 4th Street where another march will be held.

Activists will call on President Obama to stop deportations and provide “legalization or no reelection,” Celina Benitez of Southern California Immigration Coalition told EGP on Wednesday.

The groups will also protest in favor of the right to organize, legalization for all, and to oppose a guest-worker program, she said.
