May Day Protest Targets L.A.'s American Reclamation

Thousands of people took to the streets throughout Los Angeles to mark May Day.Occupy Los Angeles regrouped and converged at Pershing Square in downtown LA after organizing a Four Winds car and bike caravan originating at sites in the north, south, west and east of the city. Earlier in the day, the LA County Federation of Labor held a rally on behalf of workers at American Reclamation, a waste and recycling plant in north Los Angeles. The largely immigrant workforce say company management has a total disregard for employee safety and the environment. Ernesto Arce files this report from Los Angeles.
