CHICAGO (AP) - Several hundred people are participating in May Day activities in Chicago that are focusing not only on labor issues, but also on police-community relations and immigration reform.

Grant Newberger of Chicago was one of the people marching along Ashland Ave. on Friday. He was carrying a sign that read “stop murder by police.” It had photos of about 20 people who had allegedly been killed by police including Michael Brown in Missouri and Rekia Boyd of Chicago.

Another marcher, 73-year-old Richard Malmin of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, says he marches every year to show his support for worker and immigrant rights.

A group of people was holding a banner that read “more dead cops.” They were wearing black bandanas over their faces and didn’t talk when approached by a reporter.
