May Day 2011 for Labor and Immigrant Rights
Mon May 2 2011 (Updated 05/22/11)
International Workers' Day Marked in Northern California and Around the World
Around the world, workers united on May 1st for International Workers' Day — with marches and rallies. In Berkeley, students rallied and marched before heading to the larger gathering in San Francisco. In San Francisco, several thousand workers and supporters marched for immigrant rights and labor rights in San Francisco on May Day. In Sacramento, workers marched from the Capital Building to a rally at the California Democratic party convention. Five hundred people marched in downtown Fresno in support of immigrant rights and a rally was held at Eaton Plaza. KPFA dedicated the day's programming to May Day coverage.

Code Pink and others began an eight-day march to Sacramento to demand a just budget in California. The “Strike May 2011" march from San Francisco is scheduled to end on the Capital steps on Mother's Day, May 8th.
