May Day Rally Underway In Downtown LA To Fight For Worker And Immigrant Rights

On Monday, a rally is currently taking place in downtown Los Angeles to commemorate International Workers’ Day, and throughout the day, marches and rallies are scheduled for May Day.

Events will be held in Boyle Heights, Little Tokyo, and downtown Los Angeles.

People are invited to participate in Monday’s “Solidarity in Power” march and rally by the May Day coalition in downtown Los Angeles. At the intersection of Olympic and Broadway, the rally starts at 4 p.m., followed by the march at 5 p.m. Los Angeles City Hall will be the rally’s final stop.

The march has been organized by the Los Angeles May Day coalition to celebrate both immigrants and workers. They are protesting to demand the right to unionize, become a citizen, go on strike, and obtain affordable housing.

One of the first in-person gatherings for workers and immigrants since the outbreak is the march and rally.

“Forty years waiting for immigration reform. Promises and promises from one administration and then the other” said

Jubenal Estrada, an activist. “And the people in the shadows are suffering. Being deported with no rights. During this pandemic, there were a lot of workers that died for this country. Feeding us, but they are still in the shadows.”
