Cars replaced protesters by rush hour Monday as downtown L.A.'s May Day march came to a conclusion with all but a few stragglers left on the grounds of City Hall.
About 15,000 people marched from MacArthur Park to Grand Park, next to City Hall, in support of labor and immigration causes. Nearby, outside the Los Angeles Police Department headquarters, a vocal group of counter-protesters demonstrated in support of President Trump.
After hours of verbal exchanges, the Trump supporters walked off toward the federal building with a small group of anti-fascist activists following and LAPD officers closely watching. But no conflict unfolded and the May Day activities ended with only two arrests.
