Nearly a thousand people marched through Arlington today, following a six mile route from Alexandria to the White House for a May Day immigration reform protest.
The pro-immigration protesters held signs, quilts and American flags as they marched past Arlington National Cemetery and the Pentagon. Arlington police set up rolling roadblocks for the march, which was organized by the Alexandria-based group Tenants and Workers United.
In a world far, far away (the upper corner of Pentagon City mall, near Nordstrom) a store is giving away free comic books today. Darth Vader, Thor and others colorful characters are helping to spread the word.
