PHOTO REPORT: Marching on May 1 in Costa Rica

May 1, 2015

Thousands of Costa Rican workers on Friday participated in the annual May 1 march in the nation’s capital, San José.

Union members from various public institutions, political parties, environmentalists, musical bands and a group of self-described anarchists marched to demand better conditions for workers, a more just society, and better policies to help protect the environment.

The march began at 9 a.m. in Parque La Merced and continued along Avenida Segunda to the Legislative Assembly.
