Over 2,000 people marched for immigrant rights on May 1, 2008 in Fresno. The marchers started at the Free Speech area on the Fulton Mall, went to City Hall, and returned to where they started. The theme of the march was “Today We March, Tomorrow We Vote” and to “Stop the Separation of our Families.”
