Over 500 March in Fresno for Immigrant Rights
A march in support of Immigrant Rights was held in downtown Fresno today. The march, which called for fair and humane immigration reform, was attended by over 500 immigration rights activists and their allies. The marchers went from the Free Speech area at the Fulton Mall to Fresno Street, down R street, and back to the mall for a rally. This Labor Day march was organized by a coalition of immigration rights groups.
The march was led by a group of flag waving children. All photos by Mike Rhodes.
Several community groups participated in the march. In addition to the Peace and Freedom Party (pictured above), Peace Fresno, the National Action Network, and the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom carried banners in the march.
Aztec dancers performed both before and after the march. The dancers are performing at the Free Speech area on the Fulton mall before a crowd of approximately 500 people.
