(BANT) – A series of May Day rallies and protests are scheduled to take place throughout the Bay Area today, some of them getting an early start.

A Facebook page called “May Day Actions – Bay Area” says that one of the rallies was expected to get underway at 7:00 a.m. outside the the Le Meridian hotel on Battery Street in San Francisco.

Organizers say the year’s rallies will include protests against President Donald Trump and his well-known stances and statements on immigration and allowing Muslims into the United States. The Facebook page says: “This year’s May Day holds particular significance given the anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim climate and policies that have emerged under Trump.”

Here is a list of the events planned for the Bay Area:
