PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

People gathered in downtown Portland Sunday for a May Day Rally in support of immigrant and workers rights.

The rally, hosted by the May Day Coalition, was at Shemanski Park.

Their goal is to fight divisiveness in Portland communities, and to strive for peace and justice by engaging in actions that directly address issues faced by families.

According to organizers, the May Day Rally had a theme of resistance to capitalism, international solidarity, and respect for workers and oppressed groups within this society and the world.
