Thu Apr 20 2006"Gran Paro Americano 2006" on May Day
Demanding recognition for their many contributions to American society, and taking a stand against discrimination, millions of immigrants and their supporters marched in over 75 U.S. cities on Monday, May 1st. Nearly one million marched in California alone. Reports from L.A. cite hundreds of thousands turning out. San Jose and San Francisco each were estimated to have had 100,000 people march. Throughout Northern California tens of thousands took the day off from work or school, refused to buy anything, and marched united for immigrant rights.
Immigrants rights supporters first marched in Richmond, then took BART to SF immigrant events.
a total of more than 300 people are clogging up both entrances of campus, causing traffic jams and buses to run late. The main entrance has been basically shut down, and UC police are rerouting drivers to the West entrance. Students erected a mock border at the campus entrance to highlight the challenges faced by Latinos entering the US for work.
NATIONAL: Most major U.S. cities have reported large marches, in many cases the largest marches the cities have ever seen. Chicago's march was the largest in the nation with as many as three quarters of a million people having taken to the streets. LA also reported crowds numbering in the hundreds of thousands. Miami, D.C., and Denver report marches in the tens of thousands.
