Anarchist Photographs of May Day in Sacramento
A crowd of (police estimate) 15,000 to (organizers estimate) 40,000 marched in sacramento. Here are photographs from an anarchist contingent to the immigration rights mayday march and rally.
15,000 to 40,000 people marched from southside park and downtown and converged upon the state capitol in one of Sacramento's largest rallies ever. It is most definately Sacramento's largest May Day march in the history of the city. The day was extremely positive for everyone, despite the fact that police singled out and targeted the peaceful anarchists as soon as they entered the capitol grounds. They were surrounded, photographed, videotaped, and at least one independent journalist covering the blatant harassment was detained and forced to give ID. (The reason for that detention was for failure to show ID. Papiers, bitte!) Regardless, many connections were made and the police were publicly humiliated in several instances by the crowd. The faces in these photographs have been blacked out to prevent law enforcement from collecting political information on participants in the anarchist contingent.

hundreds of peanut butter and jelly bagel sandwiches were made and passed out for free to anyone who wanted one. water was also given to marchers to avoid dehydration.
