On May 1st people gathered around the world for International Workers Day. It has become an international celebration of the social and economic achievements of the labor movement. More recently in the United States it has become a day where many gather and advocate for immigration reform as well as worker’s rights.
Almost 3000 people marched on downtown Los Angeles in support of immigration reforms. they could be heard chanting “We are the students, we are the students. The mighty, mighty students. Fighting for the Dream Act,” Unfortunately the DREAM Act did not receive enough votes and died in the senate last December.
