Marchers demanded full rights for undocumented workers, money for jobs and education, and no budget cuts or fee hikes. One person was arrested during the march, but charges were later dropped. Later, two people were arrested and remain in jail as a result of an alleged altercation with the white supremacist group who call themselves the Bay Area National Anarchists. Also in San Francisco, UA in the Bay hosted a celebration in Dolores Park from 3 to 7 pm. The event included performances, face painting, maypole dancing, soccer, and tabling by groups like AK Press and Indybay.
