May Day march in SF attracts 1,000


More than 1,000 activists united in two peaceful protests Wednesday to celebrate May Day in San Francisco.

A group of about 50 rallied at Civic Center Plaza marching to an unoccupied building on Turk Street and finished off at Jefferson Square Park. Another 1,000 or so gathered at Mission and 23rd Streets in protest to the immigration policy.

The event, which was originally intended to honor the international labor movement, has become a large-scale human rights movement celebrated internationally.
