Friday Morning's "May Day" protest started at International Boulevard and High Street in Oakland. Organizers marched to City Hall and demanded the state pass the "Dream Act."

The Dream Act would grant financial aid to undocumented students attending UC campuses, the CSU system and at California's community colleges.

Governor Schwarzenegger has vetoed the dream act twice.
