Demonstrators made it clear on Wednesday that they do not approve of the so-called "show me your papers" provision of SB 1070 that is now being enforced after a judge gave his approval.

There were many signs and chants demanding an end to SB 1070, the controversial immigration law passed over two years ago. As speakers called for solidarity in the Hispanic community, one protestor likened SB 1070 to a modern day civil rights movement.

"I want to live in an Arizona, in a state, where all people are included," said Dulce Juarez. "Where all people are equal. Where all people are treated with dignity and respect, regardless of their skin color, regardless if they have a Social Security number."

Police kept a close eye on the protest, but no arrests were made.
