    Dozens of people marched through Oakland Tuesday in observance of May Day, which focused on labor and immigrant rights. 

    Other marches were also held across the Bay Area.

    The East Bay march started at the Port of Oakland focused on immigration. Longshore Union members agreed not to work, giving activists an open stage for their march to downtown.

    Protesters also demonstrated outside the Alameda County Sheriff's Office. They claim the Sheriff's Office is targeting immigrants and working hand-in-hand with Immigration Customs Enforcement.
