Tens of Thousands March on Mayday for Immigrant Rights, Labor Rights

Si se puede! May 1, 2008 saw tens of thousands of people participate in Chicago Mayday events. The flagship action was a large march starting from Union Park, and marching across Chicago to a rally in Federal Plaza, though many other events were also held.

Two main threads of the march and of the holiday — immigrant rights and labor rights — were more explicitly connected in 2008. The scale of the protest evokes the massive marches and rallies in 2006 and 2007.
