Around 500 people gathered in Echo Park yesterday for the "May First Day of Action in Support of Workers Rights" march that ended in downtown. It was one of at least seven marches in Los Angeles that either started and/or ended as one big rally around in the civic center area.

One of the most interesting quotes seen (although not in the above photos) were the masks worn for swine flu but with the phrase "ICE Flu" written on them in reference to the myriad of Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids that have taken place throughout the country, especially in Southern California.
