May Day: On Broadway and Temple Street in Los Angeles
Jesus Garcia may need a wheelchair, but he didn’t let that stop him from marching in support of immigrants and workers in downtown Los Angeles.
The 51-year-old Pacoima resident was at the front of the procession as the multitudes moved south along Broadway. “I’m here to support this with all my heart,” the 52-year-old Garcia said as people cheered and whistled from a second-floor apartment balcony.
The procession reached Temple Street about 45 minutes later. A band played as speakers addressed the crowd.
