May Day Strike for Immigrant Rights in the Beach Flats
On Monday, May 1st, International Workers Day, thousands of Santa Cruz residents marched from Beach Flats Park to the town clock and on to San Lorenzo Park. At the town clock, the march from the Beach Flats met up with thousands of people who marched from the base of the UCSC campus.
The marches were held to support the rights of immigrants and all people. In the United States, grassroots organizers of May Day 2006 called for a day of, "No Work, No School, No Buying, No Selling" to help illustrate to critical role that migrants play in the United States, and global, economy.
