March of the Immigrants

Walking towards Wilshire on Western Ave, you'd see more people leaving than there were people just arriving. It was fairly late in the day so I thought I might be just in time for the closing parts of the march.

Nearing 7pm, the crowd began to start thinning out. There were more and more people walking along the sides in the opposite direction, still holding their sign and waving flags.

Reached La Brea Ave and I too turned around and headed back. You can imagine just how strong the demonstration was by this picture of the thinning crowd below.

As late as then, I spotted this guy buying some protest gear. Better late than never.

It was almost 8pm when I decided to leave. I was walking along Serrano Ave and there were 3 guys in front of me who look like they were calling it a day too. I figured that because they had on white tshirts like many of the demonstrators did as a symbol of peace. They looked friendly, in a nice-Mexican-guy-who-takes care-of-your-neighbour's-garden sort of way. Not that they're actually Mexicans or gardeners. For all I knew, they could have been bussiness owners or programmers and not Mexican.
