Hundreds of people from around the Inland Empire marched through downtown San Bernardino today in a May Day march for labor rights and immigration reform. The march was organized by the California Partnership and the Justice for Immigrants Coalition, and included marchers from several advocacy organizations around the region. Suzanne Foster is with the Pomona Economic Opportunity Center.
“We’re here to defend immigrant rights and workers rights on International Migrant Workers Day, and to call for humane and just immigration reform.”
A crowd estimated at about 400 marched from the San Bernardino County Courthouse to San Bernardino City Hall, where they held a noon-hour rally.
In Los Angeles, security was expected to be tight as several thousand marchers were expected to turn out for today’s annual L.A. May Day demonstration.
