Tens of thousands of people marched and gathered for the "Our Communities, Our Good Jobs" labor rally in downtown on "Solidarity Saturday" in support of union workers in Wisconsin and in Los Angeles.

The demonstration, coordinated by the LA County Federation of Labor AFL-CIO, traveled from the Convention Center to Pershing Square, sending a message that collective bargaining rights cannot be taken away, and bringing out unions members and supporters across different industries.

Musical activists Tom Morello and Ozomatli performed. Hoffa was there.
