LAS VEGAS, NV (KTNV) -- Thousands of people here in the valley joined demonstrators around the world in a march for workers and immigrant rights.
The May Day march took over part of Las Vegas Boulevard near the federal building down town. The demonstration happens every year on May 1. People waved American flags and carried signs as they marched a little over a mile.
Sen. Harry Reid and Representatives Dina Titus and Steven Horsford addressed the crowd at a rally before the march. One woman we spoke to is marching for her mother who is not a citizen of this country.
The Las Vegas demonstrations were peaceful -- a different scene from a May Day demonstration in Seattle. Police there arrested at least 3 people.
