"About 10-12,000 people came out, mostly families, to rally and march for May day. The immigration issue was the topic of the day and many were there in support of immigrant rights. The signs were precious, especially 'Patriot Axe' and 'Who's gonna build the wall.' I was able to march with the crowd and the mood was high and joyous. There were families, young kids, seniors ... even a few anarchists."
