Immigrant Protest

Somehow it escaped my notice that oodles of people took part in the national day of demonstration, back on May 1, right here in Charlottesville. On C-Ville Weekly’s throughly-linkable new site, Nell Boeschenstein writes that 350 people stood outside of the Albemarle County Office Building on May 1, almost entirely hispanics, to make known their numbers in the region. Though that’s not much compared to the 300k marching in Los Angeles, it’s a lot more than I would have guessed for C’ville. Fat lot I know.
