Student group plans May Day March in Spokane

Student group plans May Day March in Spokane

It’s May 1st, and cities around the country are gearing up for May Day protests.

May Day is also known as Workers’ Rights Day, and has come to be infamous for spirited rallies — and sometimes their clashes with counter protestors — around the globe.

Here in Spokane, the Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán, a student group from Eastern Washington Univerisity, has organized a ‘Know Your Rights’ rally for Tuesday.

The ACLU says “it has never been more important to stand with immigrants and demand our government respect the rights of all people.” The goal of the march is to “carry messages of solidarity and support for our immigrant family, friends and neighbors.”

The Spokane march will be at the Riverfront Park Clocktower from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Organizers are encouraging supporters to come with signs. You can RSVP to the event here.
