Thousands of people composed of immigrants, workers and activists participate in the May Day march in Downtown LA. Several feet away from Los Angeles city hall, speakers address the masses. Every so often the crowd would explode with cheer and movement. The mood was vibrant. The streets overflowing with passionate immigrants and supporters voicing their opinions. The march was full of families and in the front of the march where a line of mothers pushing their strollers. Even in all the chaos there was a sense of unity and peace among the crowd.
