Hundreds of people marked International Workers' Day with a rally in Rhode Island's capital city.

About 200 people gathered at Burnside Park in Providence on Monday before stepping out on a two-hour protest, touching on several issues that included deportation, profiling and wage theft.

The group followed a flatbed truck that stopped for speeches and booing in front of the sites such as the Federal Courthouse and City Hall.

Participants included activists from student organizations, religious groups and opponents of various big-energy projects.

The May Day rallies are part of a nationwide effort to show opposition to President Donald Trump's immigration policies.
