Los Angeles – Thousands of demonstrators across the country have been gathering in protest of police brutality as well as economic and immigration concerns. According to an Associated Press (AP) report, several protests have been held by people demanding increased rights for workers and immigrants, and an end to the types of alleged police misconduct that have been widely reported in recent media.

Some of the protests were sparked by the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, who died after his spine was severed while in police custody. Six police officers were recently charged in his death.

International Workers' Day marches on May 1 were also prominently seen as the message of improving workers rights was compounded by some labor and immigration advocates who also focused on speaking out against abuses by police.

Demonstrators gathered in areas including New York, Denver, Minneapolis, and Oakland, California.
