Immigration Rally in Union Square (NYC)

An immigration rally/protest took place this afternoon in Union Square (NYC). It appeared that approximately 20-30 people participated. This rally seemed to be more about drumming up attention for a larger protest taking place on May 1st then about pushing the message, which as you would expect they did as well. While most of the protester had a uniform message, there was one sign regarding the 'occupation of Haiti'.

Maybe I am missing something, but I do not understand why many of the signs were in Spanish. Is it a false assumption to think that the people they really need to convey their message to and convince are English speakers?
