Global May Day Rallies

‘May Day’, May 1st, was a big day for immigration around the globe.  The first video you’ll see is from a ‘May Day’ Immigrations rally in Los Angeles.  Similar ‘May Day’ rallies were held elsewhere across the country.  This one called for congress to take action to end immigration deportations.  The US isn’t alone in these commemorations.   Second, we’ll travel to Europe where in Spain that country has been hit by record unemployment.   27% of the people there don’t have jobs.   Third video is from Turkey where riot police used tear gas and water cannons against demonstrators.  People there are calling for better working rights.  And finally, in Cuba, political leaders are asking workers to do something they have not done since Cuba’s revolution — pay taxes.
