Oakland, California (April 10, 2006) – Nearly five thousand people marched and rallied this morning in Oakland for immigrant rights. What began as a relatively small group at 100th avenue this morning, swelled to thousands as clusters of immigrant workers, families, youth, and supporters awaited the march all along International Boulevard. The eight mile march ended with a rally outside the Oakland Federal Building. This was only one of hundreds of actions today being held under the “National Day of Action for Immigrant Justice” banner (www.april10.org).
