Los Angeles, CA – An important mobilization for immigrant rights is happening here, as activists build for a rally and march on May 1. Organized by the South California Immigration Coalition, the protest will demand “Stop the Deportations Now” and “Legalization for All.” The demonstration will start at Olympic and Broadway, at 4 p.m.

Veteran Chicano activist Carlos Montes stated, “Stop the deportations is our main demand because it is causing mass suffering of immigrants – especially Mexican and Central Americans, who make up 90% of the deportations. This is repression on a mass scale and it must stop!”

The Los Angeles May Day demonstration is one many that will take place across the U.S. May 1.
