May Day 2010: March for Immigrant Rights

Tomorrow (May 1, 2010) is May Day, when marches occur nationwide in support of immigrant rights.  I remember being at my first May Day march in NYC a few years ago, trying to squeeze my way through tens of thousands of people in Union Square.  Good times.

Here’s a list of the Texas marches; I’m pleased to see there are two marches happening in the RGV.  Reform Immigration for America has a pretty comprehensive list of marches happening in other states.
