Working in Downtown Oakland today, I had a front row seat to the "immigration" rally that took place at the Federal building. Much like last year's rallies, it was predominantly a pro-illegal demonstration, with demonstrators carrying mexican flags, and signs decreeing such things as "Amnesty NOW", "Stop the ICE raids", and "Today we walk, tomorrow we vote". About half the signs were in spanish, and most of the chants were too.
Mexican flags were abundant during the rally
I only had my Sony Clie to snap photos, so I will have to upload them later.
**UPDATE** New pictures uploaded This speaks for itself
This sign reads "Amnistia Ahora" in large print. In small print at the bottom (difficult to read) is "International Socialist Org". Happy May Day
More Mexican Flags....they were everywhere.
