Live coverage of May Day 2013

CDNews will have live coverage of the 2013 May Day March for Workers and Immigrant Rights, which is scheduled to leave Judkins Park at 3 p.m. destined for the Federal Building downtown.

If you can’t make it out for a sunny march for social justice, stay tuned here and follow @CDNews on Twitter for updates. Post your updates in the comments below.

Here’s a map of the route, from SPD:

Turning down Jackson from 20th:


On its way down Jackson, the march passed Casa Latina and their new expansion:20130501-152757.jpg

The march easily stretches from Rainier to 17th Avenue. That’s three blocks filled curb-to-curb with people.


The march is heading through the ID on King Street. Possibly changed the route due to construction(?)


In the ID:


Marching up 4th Ave:






Found the Casa Latona crew:


Heading down 2nd. Young marchers next to me chant: “Hey, Obama, don’t deport my mama!”


The march ended with a rally at the 2nd and Madison Federal Building. Thanks for reading. Back to regularly scheduled CDNews programming.
