Organizers of what is believed to be the largest political demonstration in the city's history do some shameless but probably well-deserved self-patting of their respective backs after successfuly pulling off a huge march and rally for immigrant rights.
Oscar Garcia, whose rousing speech punctuated the event, jubilantly compared the rally to the Holiday Tree lighting ceremony. Maria Marroquin, director of the Day Worker Center, promised the movement would futilely attempt to make change at the ballot box, saying, "Today, we march. Tomorrow, we vote."
Good luck with that.
