Immigrants Rights March. LA 2/28
ANSWER helped with the sound system. Several thousand marched. Those marching were almost entirely recent immigrants, mostly Latino. What struck me the most was these were regular working class people, those who are most directly impacted by the unjust, often racist policies of California and the US towards immigrants.
Dennis Kucinich, to his credit, spoke to the crowd about the need for real justice and workers rights. This was not a huge rally. He didn’t have to come. But he did. I can’t imagine any other presidential candidate (except Sharpton) doing this.
