May 1st: Chicago 4:15pm

Just heard from my friend Nathan in Chicago that one of the marches there is wrapping up. Despite on and off light drizzle,  an estimated  five to seven thousand people gathered at Union Park in Chicago and  marched to federal plaza. The march consisted of a diverse group of people and organizations calling for just and humane immigration reform including a moratorium for raids and deportations and legalization of undocumented students, workers and their families.

When I asked Nathan what the general mood of the march was he responded…  Could se si puede be considered a mood? My answer: absolutely!

Here are some GREAT pics from the event.
