With flags held high, the smell of sage burning through the wind and the voices of over 15,000 fellow marchers, the May Day General Strike closed down Spring Street in downtown Los Angeles on May 1.
“We need to activate people,” said Thomas Allison. “Activate everyone – those who are suffering and those who are not.”
The protests began on Inauguration Day. Enter protesters in the streets. Thousands of people swarmed the steps of City Hall, chanting in solidarity against the new administration.
