Marchers in the May Day parade on Wednesday made their way down from Union Square to City Hall. The big issue, along with of course workers’ rights, was immigrants’ rights. A Japanese group called attention to the Fukushima nuclear disaster of March 2011. Marchers condemned Arizona’s harsh “SB 1070” anti-illegal immigration act.
