World Can't Wait LIVE
Speakers on the stage
Not exactly your typical protester
The Raging Grannies protesting the war
The march sets out from Justin Herman Plaza onto Market Street
An art car worthy of Burning Man, but with a message
The march continues down Market Street
Some of the protesters dressed in Guy Fawkes masks, in an homage to the film V for Vendetta, whose ominous relevance to our present situation is unmistakable.
UPDATE: The latest word back at Justin Herman Plaza is that, after having granted our permit for amplified sound from noon to 9 p.m., the SFPD has unilaterally revoked the permit, despite the fact that the protest has been entirely peaceful (with zero arrests, in fact) and entirely within the bounds of the permit. It's difficult not to see such an action as politically motivated, but I'll see if I can find out the official explanation.
