Yesterday, after waiting for the M14 bus going towards the Lower East Side I realized it wasn’t coming so I decided to walk down to 2nd avenue. Once I got towards Union Square Park, I realized why the bus wasn’t coming down this way, there was a HUGE rally against Arizona’s immigration law. It was heartwarming. Thousands of Latinos were united Marching down 4th Avenue, waving their flags and chanting in Spanish. The energy was so alive, I felt so alive walking past them. I was teary eyed as I quickly pulled out my Flip Video and recorded this clip.
NBC has a great coverage on yesterday’s event. Apparently the rally wasn’t just in NYC, May 1st seems to have been a date picked for this rally and many states participated as well. Reuters has some AMAZING images of Latinos in Los Angeles, Washington D.C and other states.
