On a typically uneventful day on the UCLA campus, a group of students gathered in Bruin Plaza. The event was organized by Alejandra Cruz, a graduate student who is part of the BAMN (By Any Means Necessary) organization.

The group of students then walked around campus holding banners proclaiming, “We are all Californians” and yelling chants of “Jim Crow? Hell no!”

After gaining attention from students and campus security, the group boarded buses to join the May Day March that started in MacArthur Park. A mostly peaceful event this year, 10,000 people marched in solidarity for immigrant rights.
