May Day in Santa Cruz

There were two large immigrant rights marches in Santa Cruz on May Day - one starting at the base of UC Santa Cruz, and the other starting in Beach Flats. The two met at the Town Clock, where the estimated 5,000 folks marched on to San Lorenzo Park together. The actions were part of a nationwide "Day Without an Immigrant" strike that saw millions of immigrants and their allies in the streets.

Notice that most of the marchers from the Flats had U.S. flags while barely anyone from UCSC did. In fact, the university students/workers had a few "no nations, no borders" signs.

The only other closed businesses that I noticed in downtown Santa Cruz (besides Soif) were Saturn Cafe and Taquieria Vallarta. This is in stark contrast to downtown Watsonville where the majority of businesses were closed.
