On May 1 I took time time off work to attend two May Day rallies in the Mexican Heritage Center in San Jose and in Rengstorf Park in Mountain View. Both were fun events. I took lots of photos and talked to a lot of the activsts and participants.
I first went to the Mexican Heritage Center. At around 2 p.m. I picked up my niece from her school. She is really passionate about social justice issues and she knows more about certain issues than I do. I try to cover up my lack of knowledge by joking around, but I don’t think she’s fooled.
The Mountain View march was a lot of fun for Phoebe. She met a few Filipino American activists, and encountered a classmate from her high school. We marched to the Mountain View City Hall, where the Raging Grannies were waiting to greet the marchers with protest songs.
Here are photos of the May Day rally in Mountain View.
