CHICAGO -- Defying the orders of Chicago authorities, who asked organizers on April 30 to forego the May 1 marches as a precaution to prevent the transmission of swine flu, some 3,000 people took to the streets today. They called for “decent jobs, the right to unionize and, above all, the legalization of more than 12 million undocumented immigrant workers." Union members, immigrant rights groups, students, workers and families of all nationalities marched together, reports La Raza. The march was led by the organization the March 10 movement and the city’s most powerful unions, including the SEIU Local 1, UFCW Local 881, United Workers, Chicago Jobs with Justice and BCTGM Local 1.
