Filipinos join about 100,000 protesters in downtown Los Angeles on May 1st
LOS ANGELES, CA — Activists are calling on the president to have more compassion for undocumented immigrants.
Here at the Los Angeles May Day rally, as many as 100,000 are expected to hit the streets of Downtown LA.
A loud and lively group immigrant and worker rights groups and anti war protestors have loudly begun gathering at MacArthur Park.
Filipinos, including undocumented workers, are marching in the May Day protests, which is expected to be the largest in the country.
The Pilipino Workers Center have brought their jeepney to be part of the 2+ mile walk.
They are calling for Trump to have more compassion when dealing with undocumented immigrants.
Another group has also gathered downtown on Broadway and Olympic, while the Women’s Rally is taking place at Pershing Square.
Elected officials including Mayor Eric Garcetti are expected to join the actions while major streets will be closed off.
Organizers say they have been coordinating with the police for months to make sure that the event stays peaceful.
All marches will meet early this afternoon at city hall.
These marchers may have company — around the corner from city hall, pro-Trump supporters will gather for a freedom rally at the federal building.
