June 24 March-Rally For Full Rights for All Immigrants in Los Angeles, A Success

Smaller but Militant Rally

Although the march-rally was smaller than the earlier marches and rallies in April and May that numbered in tens of thousands that saw police repression and threats of deportations; immigrants and their advocates marched in militant, peaceful and festive mood

This is the first immigrant rights march-rally held in Hollywood. The usual march-rallies were usually held at downtown L.A at Olympic and Broadway.

The march was led by popular artist Don Cheto and his group, Senator Gil Cedillo, Juan Jose Gutierez of Latino Movement-USA and Angelina Corona and Jose Murillo of Hermanidad Mexicana Nacional led the march that started around 12; 30 PM from the intersection of Ivar and Hollywood. The Hollywood and Vine Metro Station was under repairs thus the march was moved one block forward.

The marchers was led by drummers and trumpeters with the sound truck made a right turn at the corner of Cahuenga and Sunset Streets at the CNN Headquarters in L.A. The marchers chanted slogans against the anti-immigrant capitalist media. CNN commentator Lou Dobbs is leading the anti-immigrant attacks on his program.

Newly elected LAPD chief William Bratton was also at the corner of Sunset and Cahuenga streets overseeing LAPD forces monitoring of the immigrant rights rally

The rally started at 1:45 PM. Senator Gil Cedillo, Raul Murillo of Hermanidad, Don Cheto, Preston Woods of International ANSWER-LA, Jim Lafferty of the National Lawyers League and Arturo Garcia of AJLPP and People’s CORE were some of the speakers and performers at the rally held in front of the Chinese Mann Theater.

Juan Jose Gutierez, Carlos Alvarez and Marilou Cabral of ANSWER-LA acted as emcees. The crowd enjoyed the music that was interspersed with the speakers.

NLG Executive Director Jim Lafferty echoed the stand of the immigrant community: “ the capitalists Congress does not want an immigration bill. Want they want is a racist anti-immigrant bill.”

He said: ”The problem with our country is not that we have a lot of immigrants. The problem is that this country has a lot of racist. They want just profits from fees, from exploitative labor from immigrants. We say, no more of anti-immigrant laws. ”
