On May Day - also known as International Workers Day - the Campaign for a Healthy California, Occupy LA and Occupy LA Wellness held a rally in support of universal health care. The rally at Mariachi Plaza in East Los Angeles attracted several hundred people, and was part of various May Day actions held around the city. The event featured speakers and musical entertainment. A highlight of the rally was a street theater performance, featuring a giant papier mache puppet representing California families battling another giant puppet representing the health insurance industry. California OneCare board member Alberto Saavedra played the emcee. The show was an instant hit.
