San Francisco, California (May 1, 2006) – 100,000 people march down San Francisco’s Market Street today during what would have otherwise have been the height of a busy Monday afternoon. The march and general strike was a small piece of the nationwide mobilization over a million strong to demand justice for immigrants. Although a majority of marchers were Latino, from the looks of things plenty of businesses had to do without immigrants of many nationalities.
