May Day march in Los Angeles

Yesterday I went to Downtown LA near 11th and Figueroa street to take pictures of the May Day or International Workers’ Day march. This event was put together by the May Day Coalition of Los Angeles. Here are some of the pictures and I will have a video of the march finished in the next couple of days.
