SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Hundreds of workers are rallying and marching along San Francisco’s scenic bay-front in support of immigrant and workers’ rights and to demand justice for several men fatally shot by city police.
Members of the International Longshore & Warehouse Union began their May Day celebration Sunday with a rally at Fisherman’s Wharf.
About 300 people holding signs that read “Long Live May Day” and “Stop Police Terror,” and chanting “No Justice No Peace! No Racist Police!” then marched along the Embarcadero.
The crowd is holding a second rally at the Harry Bridges Plaza, across from the Ferry Building, where relatives of several Latino and black men killed by San Francisco police are addressing them.
Across the Bay in Oakland, workers with the same union marched from the Fruitvale BART station to a park, where a fair on community resources is being held.
