Liberty on Broadway: a lovely young woman, flag in hand, carried through a sea of protesters in downtown Los Angeles today. One of many stunning photos found in someonewalksinla's "May Day" photo set.

I posted 72 images of the Great American Boycott march to L.A. City Hall, along with a video clip of 100 mariachis playing "Viva Mexico" to the crowd of 300,000 to 400,000. You can find it here: Link.BoingBoing reader Nigel Stewart says,
Choice images on Flickr include a view of Spring Street packed with marchers as far as the eye can see: Link.
Here are 100 mariachis: Link.
And a young couple in wedding garb (though not married): Link.
The page contains links to a Quicktime movie and a You Tube URL with amateur miniDV footage shot in downtown Los Angeles along Broadway from Olympic up to City Hall.

Here are some video clips from LA today, including footage of police beating protestors in MacArthur Park. I just got back to my office about 30 minutes ago, which is directly next to MacArthur Park, the main site for the LA Immigration/May Day Protests. This began around 8:50PM and I managed to score some pretty intense footage on my phone. The quality isn't stellar, but it is more than enough to see the brutality with which the LAPD used on innocent, peaceful protestors. Video one, video two, video three, video four, video five, video six, video seven.Previous BoingBoing posts about the May 1 marches: Tampa, Los Angeles part 1, New York City, San Francisco, Tijuana, Portland, Chicago, Seattle, More Los Angeles.
