Thank God. AP reports:

A week after a pro-immigration rally was broken up by police using batons and rubber bullets, activists announced plans to march again next month to refocus attention on their pleas for a path to citizenship. Rally organizers hope the planned June 24 march will exceed the crowd of about 25,000 that attended the May 1 demonstration. It ended with riot police using batons and rubber bullets to drive protesters and journalists out of MacArthur Park. “All of us here today are united in expressing in the clearest voice possible that we can’t be intimidated into inaction,” said Juan Jose Gutierrez of Latino Movement U.S.A. at a news conference Tuesday outside City Hall.

Hope is kept alive.
