National Day of Action for Immigrant Rights on Labor Day
Local Protests Held to Draw Attention to Struggles in Northern CA
A March for Immigrant, Worker and Community Justice was held on "Labor Day," Monday, September 4th in San Francisco. Thousands gathered at 10am in Justin Herman Plaza and at 11:30am marched to Civic Center. The Regional Unity Coalition - a grouping of immigrant rights organizations and grassroots groups from around the Bay Area- organized the march to "stop attacks on our communities." The day of action focused on local struggles of immigrants, hotel workers, and those fighting displacement in Bay View/Hunters Point, and sent the message that: "Immigrants, labor, and communities of color stand in solidarity against displacement, anti-labor and anti-immigration legislation and practices and the militarization of our communities."
