May 1st Boycott Events

I’ve already written about some events that are scheduled for Santa Ana [Here]. There are some other events going on locally:

U.C. Irvine: 11 a.m.
“May Day Teach-In” at plaza near the flag pole. At 2 p.m. people will car-pool to larger ralies.

Los Angeles: Noon
There will be a march and rally starting at Olympic and Broadway and ending at City Hall on First and Temple. The rally begins at 2:30 p.m.

San Diego/Tijuana: 1 p.m.
Marches are planned on opposite sides of the border at San Ysidro. One will go from Larsen Park in San Ysidro to the U.S.-Mexico border and back. Across the border, protesters will march from the Las Brisas shopping center to the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana.

There are plenty of criticisms of this boycott, but I think that it has already accomplished a small goal: people are talking about immigrants’ contributions to the U.S. economy.

Next I’d like to see boycotts and rallies organized by Orange County homosexual rights activists, people living under the poverty line, and Orange County workers that don’t have healthcare.
